This study investigates modified literature circles as an effective comprehension strategy for diverse learners. The data from this action research indicated that when modifications and appropriate levels of support and pre-teaching are made available, literature circles can support developed discussions and improve comprehension for diverse learners. Important implications emerged from the data for special educators teaching literacy. Teachers should utilize the following modifications: clearly defined/displayed roles during literature discussions, sentence starters, pre-literature circle conferences to develop questions and clarify thoughts before meeting as a group, and explicit vocabulary and comprehension instruction. Meaningful literacy experiences and strong comprehension skills can be attained for diverse learners through participation in literature circles.
