This is a lesson on scaffolding classroom discussions. This lesson delt with students participating in a Shared Inquiry discussion. The students will watch a YouTube video to show what a shared inquiry process looks and sounds like, then students hold in-class discussions.  Good lesson, however for some students who do have a hard time talking outloud in class, you may have an alternate means of exploring this lesson.  For example, you could hold a shared, collaborative discussion completely online through Google Docs, or Google talk.
