Instructional Frameworks for Quality Talk about Text: Choosing the Best Approach
Lightner, Sarah C.; Wilkinson, Ian A. G.
Reading Teacher, v70 n4 p435-444 Jan-Feb 2017
In this article, the authors provide a menu of nine discussion frameworks from which teachers can choose to engage students in collaborative conversations about text in order to foster reading comprehension and address the Common Core State Standards. Some of the frameworks identified in this article are better suited to instructional goals that emphasize acquiring information from a text, whereas others are better suited to goals of adopting a critical-analytic stance toward the text; still others are better suited to goals that require students to respond to literature on an expressive level. The authors describe features of the nine discussion frameworks for teachers to consider when choosing which framework best meets their instructional goals and the needs of their students.
