Harkness in action!

From KST:

I used a Harkness Discussion from Voice21 with a low ability year 9 intervention group. It was a major success! Starting the discussions, I gave them a few prompts to debate, ensuring I used some prompting questions with the Student Talk sheets to help all students phrase their answers. Every student managed to join in at some point, even sharing their own topics they wanted to debate. They were fully engaged and we debated around 6 topics within the hour. The photos show two separate discussions, with one showing more passion from everyone and a lengthier dialogue - I will let you imagine the discourse surrounding that one!
