Dyadic Essay Confrontation

Students are given a reading assignment and asked to write a question that integrates this and earlier material. They respond by writing on a separate sheet of paper a one page "model" answer. Students are paired in the next class period, exchange questions, and write a one page response to the partner's question. The students exchange their one page model answers and their in-class writing. After reading their partner's in-class and model answers, the pair compare and contrast the model and in-class answers.
