Description and Purpose

Students select a slip of paper from a container filled with quotes from an assigned reading. They are given a few minutes to think about what they want to say in response to their quote, and then each student reads their quote and comments on it. 'Quotes' is an effective strategy for ensuring equitable participation because it provides all students a platform by which to join the discussion. It also underscores the instructor's commitment to the value of the assigned reading, addressing complaints that follow-up, in-class conversations do not draw explicitly enough on the text that students have been asked to spend time reading.
