Publisher: Touchstones Discussion Project
Comber, Geoffrey, Comber, Geoffrey, Zeiderman, Howard
In our highly technological world, a fact of life is that new skills constantly need to be mastered. Often students have to undertake this task themselves. Touchstones for high schools prepares them for this necessity. The four volumes deal systematically with the various aspects of this challenge.Today's students can no longer merely aspire to be successful students. They must learn how to teach themselves and others. This is as true for those who will go on to college and graduate school as for those who will enter the workforce directly from high school. Nothing in the curriculum prepares them for this task as well as Touchstones discussions. The high school series teaches students how to lead cooperative discussions among their peers. It gives them the ability to understand what they need to learn from others, what they must teach themselves, how to recognize what they already understand, and how to use their strengths to extend their knowledge. Writing becomes an ever-increasing element of the program. Reading comprehension skills are developed and refined.50 interdisciplinary classical texts teach students the dynamics of classroom discussions. Through weekly meetings, they learn to analyze the class discussion and their own interaction. They then offer suggestions for improvement.Comber, Geoffrey is the author of 'Touchstones: Texts for Discussion' with ISBN 9781878461346 and ISBN 1878461346.
