Using Circle Time to Learn About Stories


October 2007 | 80 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
As teachers have become familiar and confident with the Circle Time technique they need further ideas and resources to help them develop this type of work with young people.

This engaging book will help teachers who want to use the collaborative and co-operative method of learning to widen it from PSHE to other parts of the curriculum. It allows the teacher to develop a particular theme using key questions, activities and games. The unique links to storytelling and literacy skills will make this book highly popular with primary teachers.
