Notes:

"Discussion-based learning is integral to improving students' general subject mastery, reading comprehension, conceptual understanding, problem-solving ability, and communications skills. However, leading a discussion is one of the most difficult and complex tasks for new and experienced teachers alike. The Art of Discussion-Based Teaching offers a singular tool for practicing and pre-service K-12 teachers who want to create more open, student-centered discourse in their classrooms. Author John Henning guides readers through the process of creating the ideal conditions for a discussion, anticipating students' responses, and guiding the direction of a discussion. The Art of Discussion-Based Teaching is essential for any teacher eager to sustain engaging dialogue in the classroom."
