I think discussions often fail because we (who excel at academic discourse and can happily talk on topics of interest for hours and days, if not careers) expect too much. We want students to discuss the reading and sustain that interaction for 30 minutes. Why don’t we start by preparing students for discussions in shorter bursts? Why aren’t we using participation to provide the practice and feedback they need to develop discussion skills? Doing so has the potential to improve classroom interaction. – See more at: http://www.facultyfocus.com/articles/teaching-professor-blog/relationship-participation-discussion/?ET=facultyfocus:e137:119382a:&st=email#sthash.xDsL6isV.dpuf

It revolutionizes the way they view reading and writing, presenting it as a design challenge in which words, images, and format serve to express their ideas.
