Reflection: Trust and Respect Discussing Drama: Responding to Peer-Written Study Guide Questions - Section 3: Collaborative Study Guide: Student Questions and Answers


As noted above, the "true" intent of this assignment was not to check students' recall of the play, but rather to foster a deeper discussion of the play and the metacognitive process of crafting questions, as students sought clarification beyond the surface questions shown in these videos. Discussion moved into "Why did you think that was important? and "Why did you ask that?"
