Sticky-Note Discussions work very well when students are working in lecture groups or when they are reading a long or difficult selection. STEPS: 1. As students read, or after they have read a selection, they will place a sticky note to mark passages they want to talk about. These might be things they question, find humorous, find interesting, or descriptions they really enjoy. On this note they write the reason for marking this section.
Once students have this idea, suggest they mark about one or two sections per chapter.
Begin the class discussion by having students talk about the places they have marked and their reasons for marking those passages.
