Literacy circles are a common student-centered reading strategy that I like to incorporate into my curriculum. This is where a group of students all reading the same text take on particular jobs that they perform for a designated amount of pages and then share out. Then the roles will alternate until everyone in the group has had an opportunity to try out each job. Before students are released to their groups, I will describe and model each job based off of a class read-aloud book. While students are sharing in their groups, I will circulate and eavesdrop. I agree with Dr. Tomlinson in the respect that students can pick up on subtle messages that teachers give off, and it is imperative to send a message to students that you believe in them and that they can achieve if they work hard (Laureate Education, 2010). With this non-negotiablein mind, I only use growth mindset language in my classroom. I will also talk to my students about productive struggle and how they can grow their minds by overcoming challenges.
