Across grade levels, it is important that students are “reading the world and reading the word” (Freire and Macedo, 1987). Literature Circles (Daniels, 2002) are one way to cooperatively engage students in “reading the word,” so when the traditional role choices are revised to real-world perspectives like a social worker or journalist, students practice “reading the world” as well.
