dc.description.abstract The 21st century has presented many new technological advances that distract students and make the role of the teacher more complicated. It has become very difficult for the teacher to keep his or her students motivated and to keep them involved, especially during the literature session. Scholars in the field of education have introduced a lot of approaches that enhance students’ learning. One of these approaches is the discussion-based approach. This study seeks to ascertain whether or not students in one of the Lebanese schools comprehend literature texts better and are more involved in the literature classroom. Through examination of students’ responses to performance assessment questions, questionnaires from students, checklists filled by the participant observer, and rubrics from students, findings indicate that the discussion based approach motivates students, increases their involvement in the classroom, and improves their understanding. Since the method is action research, amendments for teaching using the discussion based approach have been made. en_US
