    Doing What Works

Ninth-grade Humanities teacher Rebecca Wieder describes how she facilitates literature circle discussions. Wieder's students discuss a novel in groups where each plays a role: summarizer, discussion director, connector, literary luminary, and literary terms expert. Watch how she sets goals with her class for effective group discussions. View the sample material, Literature Circles Lesson Plan and Materials, for more details.
