Kelly Gallagher's Twenty Questions is an alternative to traditional high school homework assignments that fosters greater text comprehension. The simple design "students write twenty questions as they read assigned" belies the complexity of the discussion fostered by the student-generated questions. On this day, students use the assignment to respond to George Orwell's 1984 in small-group and whole-class discussions.

About the Author:

Kelly, a "baseballoholic" and a self-described expert at negotiating airports, is also a teacher with 21 years of high school teaching experience behind him.
