Professional Reflection

Take a step back from your classroom and examine the video clip in relation to your own instructional practices. Use the questions below to spark discussion about instructional practices in department meetings, team meetings, or as a prompt in your own professional journal.

Consider:
  • How might your students (and their parents) respond to literature circles as portrayed in this video?
  • What kinds of support would your students need to become successful participants in literature circles?
  • What are the benefits of developing literature-based curricular units for other areas of study such as history, science, and mathematics?
