Use this unique instructional approach to enable students to read literature they enjoy while developing critical consciousness and addressing issues of social justice. By learning critical terms, the concept of literature circles, and literary theories, you can create conditions for your students to critique texts and take pleasure in them. Learn how you can help students explore issues of identity, power, oppression, diversity, and context through participation in literature circles and read-alouds. Questions for classroom discussions, excerpts from selected young adult literature and suggested readings, and examples of classroom discussions give you a starting point for your instructional approach.
