Overview

Literacy groups promote discussion and learning through the exploration of text, but many educators are hesitant to adopt them. For current and future secondary teachers, administrators, and curriculum directors, Read, Discuss, and Learn provides support and guidance so educators can confidently involve students within the learning process at a deep level. This is a practical resource guide that walks teachers through the use of literacy groups within their classrooms over a typical 365-day journey of secondary students. The author provides educators with the tools to think about literacy groups, to create literacy groups, and to design the best assessment to adequately evaluate students' comprehension and mastery of new content.
