As a teacher in high school, this book has served as the foundation for changing the way I run my class. Implementing discussion as a way to enhance the education of my students. If you are looking for a way to get your students to the next level of critical thinking, this book will show you how to make it happen.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By S. Norton on July 17, 2014
Format: Paperback
This was a book the NCTE highlighted as a good source, so I picked it up through Amazon (better price). I have been teaching for over 20 years, and I frequently find many books geared for teachers just rehashing strategies that most of us figure out on our own within the first 3-5 years in the classroom. I was pleased to see that this text offered more than that. Another problem has been the number of texts that focus on what to do in the elementary classroom. This one is very specifically written for secondary English teachers, and the examples of exercises use texts regularly taught in American high schools today.

Besides the different strategies that I can employ to engage reluctant participants or to develop better discussion questions, I think my favorite section was on how I can ask for and give support when working with colleagues to do peer evaluations.
