  • Next message: Deb Holland: "[Teacher-TalkNovel] who owns the novel?"

    I've used it with sixth graders in a modified version. We use a ball to
    designate a speaker, and I gave some questions in advance for the students to
    think about. it worked well and the students liked it.
    I also tried the quote activity from the series. It was fantastic, even the
    special needs students participated. When we debriefed, many students said
    we need to do this again.
