Student-Posed Questions for Literature-Based Discussion.
Commeyras, Michelle; Sumner, Georgiana
The ideas in this mini-brochure are intended for teachers interested in creating opportunities for students to pose questions during literature-based discussions. The brochure suggests that a child-centered approach to questioning is a highly motivating way to conduct discussions because students of all reading abilities can participate. The brochure discusses developing discussion guidelines, emphasizing that "put-downs" are unacceptable, orienting before reading, soliciting questions after reading, accepting all questions, encouraging collaboration, shifting to peer discussion groups, and learning from students' questions.
