In Middle School ELA
Using Read Around Groups
Have you used 'read around groups' in your middle school ELA class?
Two years ago (I think it was two, but I keep losing track of time, so maybe it was more...!), I read Teaching Adolescent Writers, by Kelly Gallagher.
One strategy I've really enjoyed (and so have my students) is RAGs - Read Around Groups.
This is a great strategy to help students share their writing with each other and to allow them to see the variety of writing styles and skills of their peers.
