From the Publisher"Literature circles have been heralded as an effective learner-centered approach to engage students in analyzing, discussing, and understanding literature. Now, through this book, the educator has a helpful guide to strengthen these literature circles with technology. The book begins by providing information on the effect of the digital age on today's students. This effectively establishes the need for enhancing lessons through technology. Author Terence Cavanaugh then shares the background of the literature circle before expanding on a variety of technological options for implementing a successful literature circle. The author explains eBooks, digital logs, blogs and wikis, videoconferencing, and more, but does not stop there. As a helpful resource tool, this book provides sample worksheets, instruction ideas, and resources for many content areas. Each chapter ends with an extensive list of resources and references. A helpful appendix that covers sample rubrics and scoring guides, as well as a detailed table of contents and an index add to the overall usefulness of this book. Recommended."
