Annotation

Detailed outline of his use of the Harkness model of student led discussion to empower upper division high school students to explore the novel’s themes, imagery, character, and plotlines according to their own interests. Ott primes discussion through journal exercises and modifies the Harkness model by assigning formalized roles to students, e.g. topic chooser, topic resolver.
