Description

This collection will help newcomers and veterans alike make the most of student discussion and inquiry in classrooms from middle school to high school to college. The contributors offer theory-grounded, classroom-tested approaches for literature study in which students engage in democratic dialogue and practice authentic, collaborative inquiry. The book opens with a primer on discussion-based classes (seminars) and inquiry-focused instruction before moving into three main sections with ideas to invigorate any classroom: (1) “how-to-do-it-tomorrow” approaches for enabling active learning and vital discussion, (2) diverse ways to (re)structure a course or curriculum around inquiry, and (3) assessment strategies including student self-assessment. The book closes with an annotated bibliography of suggested readings.
Classroom Practices in Teaching English, Vol. 32. 189 pp. 2002. Grades 7–College. ISBN 0-8141-2343-0.
