What are some of the ways to get most (ideally, all..) students doing the assigned readings, and doing them well so that there can be more fruitful classroom discussions and fewer lectures that summarize the readings?
Of course, in-class reading quizzes, take-home summaries, and reading questions are options.
What exactly has worked well (or hasn't worked well) for you?
I have tried in-class reading quizzes but haven't been too happy with them: they take up a lot of time and perhaps they were each at too little of percentage of the total grade for enough students to take them seriously.
Since teaching life would surely is better when more students do the reading, any tips on how to make this happen would be appreciated greatly.
