Class discussions need guidance. Before having a class discussion or asking questions hold up one of these signs to indicate how you want the students to respond. These signs make it clear to the students how they are to respond to the prompts or questions that are happening in the class. You can hold up the "Think Before You Share" card to indicate there will be think time. You can hold up the "Shout It Out" sign and students can respond as thoughts come to their heads. There is also a card for them not to share and work on their own, as well as to raise their hands to be recognized. Students will know the expectations with one glance and your management during discussions will be spot on.
