Literature Circles

Literature Circles

During Literature Circles, Poquoson Elementary students are given the opportunity to assume a variety of roles (Discussion Director, Word Wizard, Passage Picker, Character Captain, and Summarizer) as they read and discuss a novel.  In this manner, students lead the discussion and collaborate with higher, analytical, open-ended questions. Literature circles provide an engaging, safe and "brave" space, providing all students an opportunity to actively have a voice-student engagement at its best!
