Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Analyzing Characters, Setting, Plot, and Theme in the Exposition - Section 3: Group Discussion


This lesson turned out to be a lesson that works well for a substitute, but can easily be manipulated to allow students time to discuss, speak, and listen.  If a substitute is there, it's just a simple answer the question activity, which, is often what is needed. 

If you, the teacher, is there, however, you can use discussion groups such as jigsaws or fishbowls to facilitate student learning. And since discussion leads to greater student learning rather than students simply answering comprehension questions by themselves, this lesson can be successful whether you're there or not.
