    Great article with some really excellent suggestions. I love when he says, "Keep in mind the common standards focus on supporting answers by citing "specific textual evidence." Follow up as many questions as you can with, "What in the poem makes you think that?" This will not only help students practice the important skill of grounding their conclusions in the text, but it will also lead to more dynamic classroom discussions." --asking those sorts of questions is good teaching, period, common core or not.
