Product Description
Academic discussions: one very effective method to use throughout the school year to promote higher order thinking, collaboration, build off others’ knowledge, create a safe environment with rules and procedures for discussion protocol…all incredibly helpful, but a bit daunting as to how to set the stage for academic discussions to begin and continue. I’ve created a two day’s lesson plan to help: included in both days are an activator, min Iesson, activities, wrap up, homework on day two, an exemplar criteria chart to tweak for your own purposes , as well as a K.I.C. board to use with your class on the Smart Board or as an individual activator on day one. Included also are prompts to begin an academic discussion, day one, and an engaging and timed activity to promote interest and excitement, all the way building success for academic discussions to continue. In addition on the K.I.C. board, I’ve given multiple examples for each: what I Know, what Interests me, what Choices would I like….choices included are fun examples to engage students and build practice asking and answering questions that students themselves will need no matter what field they go into. Enjoy and best, Rockermom
