Welcome to the Peachtree Literature Circle Website

A literature circle is a creative way to spark students' interest in literature. Because every student and every classroom are unique, it's easy to surmise that no two literature circles could ever be the same. Teachers and students alike tend to love them, simply because there's no right or wrong way to conduct a literature circle. Planned to appeal to the students making up the group, literature circles can focus on virtually any aspect of a genre of books or a specific book or author. Literature circles can be an ideal learning vehicle, not only for reading and language arts subjects but also for history and science. The Peachtree Literature Circles are offered as after-school extra-curricular activities for all students. These circles are divided by grade for 6th and 7th graders, 8th and 9th graders, 10th and 11th graders, and 12th graders.

The Peachtree Literature Circles have been a fixture of our school for several years, and they maintain strong popularity among students of all ages. Librarian Helene Ledger and American Literature teacher Geoffrey Bell were the driving forces behind the creation of literature circles at Peachtree. These faculty members worked tirelessly to plan and develop the groups to make them a reality. The faculty advisers assigned to the literature circles are huge fans of the groups as well, believing strongly in the benefits derived by the students who attend them.
