Do you ever wish your students connected as deeply and as personally as you do with the amazing books they read? Because we know you’re not someone who’s just giving them the same old books.
Using the Restorative Approach of community-building circles, we’ll walk through the benefits of this approach. We’ll experience the process. And we’ll learn how we can engage students deeper into their learning through circle discussion as the class shares the joys of literature...all the while holding meaningful and powerful introspective conversations about how we felt as we read/listened to the story.
In this volume, we are focusing on using picture book biographies. Educator Samantha Cleaver said, “Picture book biographies are a great way to help bring historical figures to life and encourage students to ask deeper questions about a person, time period, or event.” We hope you can use the picture books as a gateway for introspective discussion in your classroom.
You will receive 25 circle scripts based on a diverse collection of picture books ready for you to use in the classroom tomorrow!
