Finding a Voice in a Threaded Discussion Group: Talking about Literature Online
English, Cathie
English Journal, v97 n1 p56-61 Sep 2007
High school teacher Cathie English believes online threaded discussions are "an amazing ally to the teacher who cares about giving voice to every student in the classroom." They offer a forum for quiet students to develop and verbalize ideas; promote in-depth response and reflection; encourage peer affirmation; and provide opportunities for more teacher-student and student-student interaction. English also addresses several issues that accompany online discussion, such as parental concerns, classroom implementation, and technology access and equity. (Contains 7 resources.)
