This study aimed to revealing the effectiveness of the literary circles strategy on developing literary taste skills (emotional, content, linguistic, aesthetic, creative) among Eleventh Grade literary students in Jordan. The study members consisted of (127) male and female students from Adib Wahba Secondary School for Boys and Al-Balqa Comprehensive Secondary School for Girls, both of which are affiliated to the Directorate of Education in Qasbat Al-Salt. (67) male and female students were taught according to the conventional strategy. To achieve the objectives of the study, the researchers prepared a teacher's guide on the literature circles strategy, a list of literary taste skills and indicators, and a literary taste test, and the test was applied on the two groups before and after teaching. The experiment lasted for eight weeks for both groups.

To answer the study questions, descriptive statistical methods were used, and the multiple covariance analysis (MANCOVA) was used, and the results showed that there were statistically significant differences at the level (a = 0.05) between the two groups due to the effectiveness of the literature circles strategy in literary taste skills collectively and individually in favor of the experimental group. The results showed that there was no statistically significant difference due to the interaction between strategy and gender in the literary taste test, and considering the results of the study, the researchers recommended: Adopting the strategy of literature circles in teaching literary taste skills for the secondary stage.
