These weblogs, as well as other activities, have taught me a great deal about conversing through literature. This experience opened my eyes to the wide range of questions and answers that are used during literature talks. After participating in these weblogs, I feel much more confident conducting literature circles in my classroom. In order to have my students actively engaged and participating, I now know what questions to ask and what answers to accept. Several times when posting, I refered to Bloom's Taxonomy which refreshed my memory and reminded me of the importance of these critical thinking questions. This was an enlightening journey; however, the required number of postings should be shortened.
Thanks Mrs. Jordan and especially Mrs. Anne Davis for your patience and your guidance.
