Fostering Classroom Discussion About Complex Ideas and Texts

What's Inside

Fisher and Frey show you how to facilitate classroom discussion that goes beyond low-level questions and answers to promote students' deeper understanding of complex text. By employing think-alouds, guided questions, and classroom routines such as annotation and Socratic seminar, teachers can help students to think more deeply about text and have fuller and more purposeful academic conversations.
