ABSTRACT
The article discusses how to facilitate classroom discussions so that students talk among themselves rather than primarily directing comments towards the teacher. It notes that some teachers think students do not have the skills to productively speak with one another, lack the knowledge to deliberate well, and will get distracted if not led by an instructor. The author goes on to suggest that quality discussions can be held when students are prepared and address controversial topics.
