Good discussion questions are vital in helping students understand key themes, characters, and settings in a piece of literature. After your students read a text, use these questions as prompts to promote discussion in the classroom or to engage in individual reflection for a homework assignment. While it's important to make sure students understand plot, good discussion questions should help them go beyond comprehension and explore a text in more depth. Well-formulated questions are open-ended and help students foster critical thinking skills, as well as analyze, synthesize, and evaluate ideas more effectively.
