When I first started teaching I was so intimidated of Reading/Literature Circles, and quite honestly I just didn't know how to start. It took a lot of trial and error, but ultimately I saw a lot of success with it and have since trained other colleagues to use Reading/Literature Circles in their classrooms. I hope that this resource will help you do the same!
