Fostering Effective and Engaging Literature Discussions
Lewis, Kayla
Reading Horizons, v56 n4 Article 4 2017
Literature discussion groups are a widely used practice in many classrooms. Creating literature discussions that are both effective and engaging can be a rewarding experience for both the students and the teacher. As a part of a larger study examining the scaffolding that took place during literature discussions, this article focuses on the strengths of three teachers implementing literature discussion groups within their fifth grade classrooms. Through an analysis of these teachers' strengths, a scale was developed to help other teachers as they reflect on their own literature discussions.
