Inquiry-based discussion groups with students from both classes can be organized by identifying an essential question and asking students to individually record evidence of the answer to the question as they read. These notes become the basis for discussion in groups made up of students from both classes, either in virtual meetings or text-based conversations. Inquiry questions can be based on:

  • Character
  • Theme
  • Conflict
  • Writer’s Craft
  • Critical Lenses
  • Connections to Current or Historical Events
  • Impact of the Text on the Reader
