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.
