Hill, Bonnie Campbell; Noe, Katherine L. Schlick; Johnson, Nancy J.
This guide provides the practical support teachers need to make literature circles succeed. The information provided in the guide should answer the kinds of questions teachers ask colleagues about implementing literature circles. It is not intended to stand alone. It is designed to supplement and extend two professional books on literature circles: "Getting Started with Literature Circles" (Katherine L. Schlick Noe and Nancy J. Johnson, 1999) and "Literature Circles and Response" (Bonnie Campbell Hill, Nancy J. Johnson, and Katherine L. Schlick Noe, 1995). The guide is divided into three broad sections. The first section--Teaching Suggestions and Forms--contains the following parts: (1) Literature Circles Organization; (2) Oral Response: Discussions; (3) Written Response: Journals; (4) Extension Projects; (5) Families and Literature Circles; and (6) References. Under the second section--Sample Book Lists--contains the following parts: (1) Primary Book Lists; (2) Intermediate Book Lists; (3) Upper Intermediate/Middle School Book Lists; and (4) Sample Author Studies. The third section--Bibliography of Professional Resources for Literature Circles--contains the following parts: (1) Professional Resources on Literature Circles and Response; (2) Professional Book Publishers; and (3) Web Site Resources for Literature Circles.
