Product Description
From Electric English...
This is the assessment that I created for a unit on Anthem by Ayn Rand. The Harkness Method is similar to a Socratic Seminar in that the students are expected to use the material and subject matter from the book as a springboard for discussion with each other. The Harkness method takes the idea of collaboration one step further however.... The students must rely on each other as a team to determine their grades. Within each small group, the students are assigned roles ahead of time; responsibilities they know they must fulfill to facilitate the discussion and ideas within their group. I have found the Harkness to be a highly effective form of assessment. The students genuinely enjoy the process, and they learn more about the novel in question, whatever it might be, and they learn about themselves and their peers in the process. This particular piece is a list of abbreviated symbols that either you or a student may use while noting the course of the conversation and discussion during the Seminar.
