Tuesday Tips: Why Discussion > Reading Quizzes

So true for Middle School as well – in Reading Workshop and Social Studies. The goal should be:
“So let’s say instead that students come to class and have to talk to each other about what they read.

Let’s say the teacher isn’t going to tell them what to think about the text or even ask any guiding questions at all about the text.

Let’s say a student who didn’t read comes into that situation, a situation where she is expected to ask questions and make observations based on the text and her own reading. “
