learning goal: what are the most insights about your group’s focus topic that arise from your group’s conversation? what makes these insights significant?
group-conversation protocol: one at a time, present passage that produces a significant insight into the novel, especially in terms of the group’s assigned focus; allow each presenter time to preview the reading of the passage by explaining the context, time to read the passage, and time to explain the insight and its significance. Give each member the time necessary to do these things thoughtfully. After each member’s presentation, open the floor for discussion of that passage and the presenter’s explanation.
During the process, feel free to take notes for yourself, in order to keep track of ideas and details you want to remember while reading Volume 2 and for future conversations in your focal group.
