Davis, Hope Smith
Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v13 n1 p68-76 Feb 2013
This essay examines areas where literacy researchers in secondary and postsecondary contexts have explored the use of classroom discussion for extending critical thinking and content comprehension among students. It provides an argument for the use of strategic conversations in postsecondary classrooms and outlines specific methods for planning and implementing class based discussions aligned with areas of convergence between adolescent and adult learning theories.
