Literacy Circles is an approach which develops Reciprocal Reading.
Reciprocal reading is a well-researched method used to develop learners’ reading skills, promote higher order thinking, develop listening and talking, and ensure access to the curriculum for all learners. Studies have also demonstrated that learners transfer their learning into other contexts. Reciprocal reading is just one in a number of strategies which can be used when learners are reading and analysing texts.
We have developed guidelines to help you establish Literacy Circles in your classroom.
When printing these guidelines please select “Flip on the Short Edge” under “2 Sided Printing” in your printer’s settings. This will print a booklet using three sheets of A4.
