Rethinking Homework - 20 questions

Twenty Questions Homework
by Kelly Gallagher

"I designed the Twenty Questions homework assignment to illustrate to students that it’s normal for good readers to be confused when starting a book. It helps reinforce the notion that confusion is normal and is a good thing. Strong readers develop the ability to live with ambiguity, and they trust that the author will eventually clear up confusion. This assignment helps students to see that."
