Discussion templates are some of the best ways to get quiet or unsure ESL students to get talking.

This lesson uses the Aesop Fables as the reading text but the discussion cards could be used with any text of interest to the students.

This can be used and repeated weekly to practice and get deeper with discussions and grow in students' academic discussion.

Each lesson that I create is designed with the next step in mind: repetition, academic growth, and how they will apply their skills within their English language abilities.

The amazing thing about templates and discussion cards is that the students can use them within any language level and they grow with practice.
