Circle Geometry, a senior mathematics topic, is often regarded as time-consuming and associated relational concepts difficult for students to grasp. Units of work that introduce students to circle geometry theorems are frequently described as a string of tedious constructions. This article explores teacher-designed dynamic geometry software templates to maintain student ownership of circle geometry theorems. It presents a strategy for using Dynamic Geometry Software (DGS) templates within a theoretical framework. The teaching sequence is embedded within the van Hiele Teaching Phases and includes sample materials for teachers. (Contains 3 figures and 1 table.)
