Abstract

This case study reports the students' perception of pedagogical knowledge during joining literature circles of paragraph writing class. The data are derived from the students' interview after joining some sessions of writing class. The data were analysed with Shulman’s theory on technological pedagogical and content knowledge (2006) and Miles and Huberman’s theory (1994) which consists of data reduction, data display, and drawing a conclusion. Through ten interviews that recount the students’ perception in joining paragraph writing class, the paper demonstrates that by implementing literature circles, it assists the students in understanding the pedagogical knowledge. It can develop their autonomy in learning. Some steps of the literature circles can assist and inspire the students in developing and organizing their own learning.
