PP197:  Responding to literature...
The concept of Literature Circles/Book Discussions is quite old but, due to the implementation of the Australian Curriculum: English (ACE) with its emphasis on literature, Literature Circles (LC) are repositioned to be a strong support for teachers looking to find a way to embed informed appreciation of literary texts in their English programs.
As the ACE provides an overview of mandated and recommended content but not pedagogy, teachers are left to make their own decisions on how to teach English. PETAA Paper 197 Responding to literature -talking about books in literature circles, discusses the power of Literature Circles as a pedagogic strategy that helps teachers refresh their ideas about helping children to read.
