    Wow! angelangst did a superb job of describing lit circles and how they work.

    Here are a couple of other things to consider:

    1. To get your feet wet, after modeling as a whole group, start with just one lit circle group. I would recommend a higher level, students who may be self starters and who may work well together. then add in other groups as you (and they) are feeling comfortable.

    Each time they meet , check in to see how they feel it's going. Was everyone prepared? Did everyone listen to each other?

    2. Our county office has videos for lend and I know there are some showing lit circles in action. One is from the Strategies That Work series. Maybe ask around??

    3. Are other teachers in your building implementing them? Maybe you could observe.

    You're right, seeing something in action really helps a lot:)
