This comprehensive step-by-step guide provides practical guidance to implement literature circles in any social studies or language arts classroom.

This book provides a how-to guide for a novice or veteran teacher or library media specialist who is interested in implementing literature circles with high interest texts. After an introduction that covers the research findings on literature circles and supplies a framework for implementation of literature circles in the classroom and library, Teaching Historical Fiction with Ready-Made Literature Circles for Secondary Readers presents 14 selected historical fiction titles for grades 7 through 12 that lend themselves perfectly to interdisciplinary teaching. Each selection is accompanied by bibliographic information, an annotation, vocabulary words, discussion questions, and guided reading questions, as well as lessons for before, during, and after reading.

The titles included cover many historical time periods and topics that can easily aligned with state and national standards. Just as importantly, these are texts that a history teacher or literature instructor would find beneficial to use with students.
