Jewell, Terry A.; Pratt, Donna
Reading Teacher, v52 n8 p842-50 May 1999
Describes how the authors have facilitated student-led literature discussions in their second- and third-grade classrooms. Outlines the basic organizational structure that fosters response-driven conversations about books. Illustrates the various ways students speak meaningfully with each other about the literature (including inferential reasoning, opinion statements, and use of supporting evidence) and notes specific teacher actions that foster these discussions.
