When educators provide explicit instruction, guidance, and feedback to students and let them steer the dialogue, students develop essential critical-thinking, problem-solving, and self-directed learning skills. This book details a framework for implementing student-led classroom discussions that improve student learning, motivation, and engagement across all levels and subject areas. The text features tools, tips, and exercises, plus unrehearsed videos of student-led classroom discussions.

  • Implement the student-led discussion framework and measure progress with the rubric for student-led discussions.
  • Watch videos of real discussions among K–12 students and convey how educators and administrators can best prompt students to engage in their own productive conversations.
  • Explore questions for stimulating students’ critical thinking in multiple subject areas.
  • Examine students’ thoughts about being involved in their own student-led discussions.
  • Follow “Take Action” prompts to exercise newly acquired knowledge. Access free reproducible versions of tools and rubrics featured in the book.
