Edutopia also provides resources from the College Preparatory School in Oakland, CA.  Among these are group math tests ( as well as participation guidelines for the discussion-approach to teaching English: • Refer to the text when needed during the discussion. A seminar is not a test of memory. • Your goal is to understand the ideas, issues, and values reflected in the text. • Do not stay confused; ask for clarification. • Talk to each other, not just the moderators. • Stick to the point currently under discussion; make notes about ideas you want to come back to. • Don’t raise hands; take turns speaking. • Listen carefully and respectfully. •Make eye contact with the speaker and be aware of your body language.” Once again, worth a look.
