Stir things up in your next 1984 discussion with this surprising twist on a run-of-the-mill discussion.

Print and cut out the role cards, then pass them out as secret missions and watch an ordinary discussion take on a life of its own as each student is tasked with a new way to participate.

From the Reviews:

"This was so helpful for a class that is very quiet."

"My students found this great fun - thank you!"

"Students enjoyed this activity."

While some cards encourage students to take specific positions about 1984, others guide students in positive ways toward making interdisciplinary connections and improving discussion dynamics.

You'll soon discover students become more aware of their own individual and group discussion ruts when they experiment with changing their own roles.
