Abstract: This action research study used a quasi-experimental pre/post-test design to investigate the effects of integrating technology into middle school literature circles. The intervention group used wiki technology to support their literature circle preparations, while the control group used role sheets. Data sources included a comprehension curriculum based measure, a reading motivation survey, and a researcher log. The intervention group earned larger mean gain scores on both quantitative measures, but this score difference was not statistically significant based on the results of independent t-tests. Qualitative data suggested positives to using the intervention over traditional methods, and highlighted areas for further research.
