"When I worked with student teachers on developing effective lesson plans, one thing I always asked them to revise was the phrase “We will discuss.”


We will discuss the video.

We will discuss the story.

We will discuss our results.


Every time I saw it in a lesson plan, I would add a  note: “What format will you use? What questions will you ask? How will you ensure that all students participate?” I was pretty sure that We will discuss actually meant the teacher would do most of the talking; He would throw out a couple of questions like “So what did you think about the video?” or “What was the theme of the story?” and a few students would respond, resulting in something that looked  like a discussion, but was ultimately just a conversation between the teacher and a handful of extroverted students; a classic case of Fisheye Teaching.


The problem wasn’t them; in most of the classrooms where they’d sat as students, that’s exactly what a class discussion looked like. They didn’t know any other “formats.” I have only ever been familiar with a few myself. But when teachers began contacting me recently asking for a more comprehensive list, I knew it was time to do some serious research.

And even worse, student follow through is an epic challenge for teachers .  It starts with the frustration when students don’t respond- or half-heartedly respond to feedback.  Then moves to the shame that such few students fail to follow through.  And, lastly, it’s the blame- we blame ourselves when students won’t commit to revising or reworking their assignments.
