Planning for Engaging Text Discussions

Trainers, coaches, and expert teachers are encouraged to use this planner to provide in-service training on facilitating text discussion. During this session, teachers will view or listen to four teachers describing how they facilitate text discussion; they will discuss their observations, and then complete a planning tool to prepare for a text discussion in their own classroom.
