Golden Line Protocol

A reading strategy where persons in the group read the text silently, highlighting or using Post-it notes to identify those parts in the text that raise questions, confirm beliefs, cause “aha” thoughts, conflict with beliefs, cause reconsideration of prior assumptions and/or show constraints of the problem or topic.  Each person then chooses two different “Golden Lines” that they want to share with the group.  Taking turns, members direct others to their line, reading it and explaining the significance. Once everyone has shared, the whole group discusses together.
