A reading circle (also called a literature circle) is a group of students who are reading the same text.
When they meet, they discuss the parts of the book they have read and plan for the next session. “The [reading] circle is a student-centered cooperative learning reading activity for a group of four or more students.
Each member of a circle is assigned a specific aspect of critical reading.
Reading circles “provide a way for students to engage in critical thinking and reflection as they read, discuss, and respond to [texts]. Students reshape and add onto their understanding as they construct meaning with other readers in their group.” http://drscavanaugh.org/lit_cir/literature_circle.htm
