Having trouble fostering those amazing "Classroom Conversations" we all hear about?? Here's your cure!!! Students need a way to begin their answers when asked a tough Higher Order Thinking Question. With these task cards, students will be asked the HOT question and provided a simple Conversation Starter Sentence Frame to help them begin their thoughtful answer to their tablemates.
These HOT Questions can be used with my other "Character Transformation" graphic organizers. They are all tied to the same standards and ideas. Use as a great tool for collaborative group work and Kagan group work. Cut them apart and place in a grab bag for easy choosing.
