Abstract

This paper highlights findings of a workshop based on responses given by practicing teachers on the use of Literature Circles (LC) as a technique to develop students’ creative writing skills. It uncovers teaching techniques that have been used by teachers to promote and enhance students’ writing skill using literature as a resource. The other issue initiated in this paper is the teachers’ opinion on the suitability and practicality of applying Literature Circles in their classroom. The overall response shows that, prior to the workshop session, the teachers have used conventional methods in their classroom. Interestingly, it is discovered that they are very receptive of the idea of using the technique introduced in the workshop despite the challenges they may face in their classes.
