Abstract

The purpose of this study is to learn how first grade students engage in talk about text in a heterogeneously grouped book club. Will the students use the structures of response that are modeled during whole group discussion of literature with their peers in an independent setting? With those structures of response made available, what kind of talk will take place? Will the students independently engage in higher level thinking about text? How can I set up an authentic, student-led book club in which first graders are able to independently engage in complex interactions and have rich conversations about literature?
