Our curriculum in the multiage classroom takes on little changes each year, hopefully for the better. This year part of our reading program will include literature circles. While this format has been popular in the last few years, we had not incorporated it in our classroom. So far we have trained the class in the different roles that they bring to the circles, using an all class novel. This week the students selected their own novels and have begun their discussion circles. It is definitely an adjustment for the students to facilitate their own discussion for any length of time, but they are learning.
