Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v8 n3 p67-76 1997
Describes the college-level use of written reading reactions structured assignments requiring students to describe and react in writing to assigned reading, followed by classroom discussion in which all students must select and share ideas. The method is found to encourage on-time reading of assignments, broader student participation, higher levels of discussion, and a more positive student experience. (Author/MSE)
