Welcome to the Literature Circles Resource Center, College of Education, Seattle University
Several teachers have come to talk with me about assessment of student learning in Literature Circle Groups. This website provides additional ideas and rubrics for extensions and evaluation. Another element of this site is the weekly schedule of one teacher.
Literature Learning Ladders: Themes and Literature Circles
This website offers a host of links and suggestions about starting and using literature circles in the classroom. It also includes a section on using technology when conducting literature circles.
On this website from the Waloon Conferences, teachers can find handouts from recent workshops and conferences hosted by Harvey Daniels and Nancie Atwell among others. Included are graphic organizers, rubrics and checklists for cooperative, academic work!
