    I believe the best way help students who aren't making connections with the
    subject matter is to ask them "what can I do to help?" After all, WE as
    teachers, are here for them, and not vice versa. Ownership is the
    key--coaching students to think of ways to interpret the novel, using their
    own creativity, will enable them to obtain the most from the reading.

    I find the literary circles on the tapes to be quite helpful to all students,
    as they are able to explore the questions they have together. Certain
    students may not feel so perplexed when they discover that their peers
    probably have the same questions, if not useful insight, about the material.

    My favorite quote by one of the teachers on the tape was, it's "my charge to
    empower the students." Once we do that, I truly agree that magic can happen,
    and bridges will be built to connect literature to our students.
