This is a one page Shared Inquiry Worksheet that can be used with Junior Greatbooks or any other piece of core literature. By having students answer a focus question prior to joining a discussion, they will be ready to participate which will facilitate a deeper small group or whole class discussion. (They are asked to give a page number, giving them an opportunity to provide evidence from the text.)
After the discussion, students are asked to respond to the same question again, and whether or not their original answer changed. They are also asked to provide a page number for this answer.
