Product Description
This is a comprehensive look at how to use the literary short story to generate effective, i.e., stimulating, lively, and productive class discussions.

My success as a class discussion leader lead me to create this document for the many student teachers I supervised. I made it a requirement that they read and follow the suggestions offered--before attempting to lead a class discussion on a short story they had assigned. The key is asking good questions: those that require interpretation of the story, rather than surface details. In other words, an answer to a good discussion question should require critical thinking.

Along with introductory information about the value of using short stories (and a suggested anthology) in the English class, you'll find lots of essential questions geared toward stimulating critical thinking and thoughtful responses from your students.

Thanks for considering Tim's Tool Box.
