    I thought that this was a great idea to introduce to high school
    students. In my experience in high school, the teachers did not have
    the students discuss on thier own, novels that we had read. It was only
    until I entered a college literature class that this method was revealed
    to me. Needless to say, I was a little lost at first, but i did
    eventually catch on. This is a great method to teach to students in
    high school becuase not only does it prepare them for college but it
    also gives them an opportunity to express thier own thoughts and
    opinions with others. Unfortunately there are very few classes in high
    school that allow students opinions to be spoken and appreciated. This
    gives the students a feeling of appreciation and worth with their
    personal opinions. I also feel that becuase the students are given so
    much time to dig into the text and come up with thier own ideas, and
    discuss thier ideas about the text, that the novel becomes more personal
    to the student and they have a deeper connection with the novel. I have
    experienced reading a text and not feeling connected with it until I
    discussed it with someone else who had read it. I see that this will
    happen if students are not allowed to discuss novels in class. All in
    all I thought this was an excelent method and exercise to do in a high
    school class after reading a novel.
