Both informational reading and speaking and listening standards are extensively used. Students work through cycles of reading and discussion using the Quizzical Questioner, Sage Summarizer, Lexicon Sleuth, and others while learning to attack text from different perspectives. A rubric guides the students to produce quality work and prepare for discussion. Students reflect on their contributions to discussion at the end.

Included with this project is an extensive teacher guide, five specific role sheets, a group rubric, a reflection, and tips for grouping and assessing.
