Abstract:

Authors include lots of helpful information on making content area literature circles an important part of the classroom and teaching experience. They show you clearly what content area literature circles are, their benefits and their structure. They then give you steps you can use to implement them into middle school classrooms and cover what types of materials will enhance both the level of discussion and the amount of learning achieved through C.A.L.C.'s. Three chapters focus on specific strategies for engaging students in C.A.L.C.'s. You also see the importance of question and problem posing along with critical literacy skills and explore various strategies you can use to assess C.A.L.C.'s. Throughout the book there are examples from real situations with middle-level students, plus instructional activities you can use to demonstrate to the class, learning activities for your students to try in their own small groups, self-evaluation ideas and more.
