Why Don't They "Just Speak?" Attempting Literature Discussion with More and Less Able Readers.
Wollman-Bonilla, Julie E.
Research in the Teaching of English, v28 n3 p231-58 Oct 1994
Finds that a sixth-grade literature discussion group composed of more able readers constructed a conversation in which students participated eagerly and valued each other's contributions, whereas the group of less able readers constructed a more teacher-dominated activity in which students seemed reluctant to participate voluntarily, display their knowledge, or construct meaning collaboratively.
