Purpose

According to the website readthinkwrite.org, "literature circles are a strong classroom strategy because of the way they couple collaborative learning with student-centered inquiry." Two teachers who incorporated literature circles in their classroom observed the following: "Students [learn] to take responsibility for their own learning...they [take] charge of their own discussions, [and hold] each other accountable for how much or how little they...do . The positive peer pressure that the members of each group placed on each other contributed to each student's accountability to the rest of the group."
