Literature Discussion Groups In The Intermediate Grades: Dilemmas And Possibilities (Kids Insight Series)
This new contribution to the Kids InSight series takes a unique look at literature discussion groups by focusing on the real-life problems teachers face as they attempt to implement these groups in classrooms of highly diverse students. Author Evans draws from real-life experience, presenting the personalities and perspectives of the children she worked with during the course of several research projects. She illuminates the potential and the problems of literature discussion groups, and provides a chance for you to think about your own practice and its impact on students in new and exciting ways. Like all Kids InSight books, Literature Discussion Groups includes additional helpful tools such as Reflection Points to help you reexamine your practice, and lists of suggested readings and sample discussion questions.
