Circling: Questioning For Repetition and Differentiation

“Circling” is a questioning technique central to Comprehensible Input approaches such as Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling (TPRS).     Circling takes some practice, but it is such a powerful skill for second-language teachers.    Content area teachers can adapt Circling for their own use in the classroom.

Circling can be used at any point when using Embedded Readings as a class.  It encourages students to ask questions of the text as they read, to slow down and to read carefully, and to reread if necessary.

Below is a link regarding Circling.   We’ll be adding further links and explanations over the next week. If you have questions, please contact us at lclarcq@yahoo.com
