Hi everyone! Looking for feedback / suggestions. (6th Grade) I want to do a class read aloud & have students discuss different components & comp skills (types of conflicts, analyzing characters, etc…) but I feel like the high ones will be the only ones who talk, or the students will get off task & talk about other things. Any ideas on how I can gauge understanding w/o them just writing the answers down? I’m looking for a balance of open discussion & accountability.

I would maybe do reading groups? So basically, split them into smaller discussion groups, and float around. Give each group a "theme" to look at to guide the discussion - not sure if something like that would work?

I am a big believer in Socratic seminars - I would start with teacher questions and slowly release to student written questions. Seminar engages everyone - which is why I love it - I used to love to do mine with an “ inner” circle that discusses and the other half of the class is in the outer circle - leave one “ hot seat where outer circle peeps can pop in and out

Maybe pair them up so they can divide the work without the others getting embarrassed or finding a way to shirk their work. Pair the high ones with the low ones, and let the low ones have more of a speaking role.
