Collaborative Discussions-2 bulletin boards and talking stems
This product is designed to help you help your students have meaningful and thoughtful discussions around any topic or text.
Included in this product are discussion cards in both color and black and white that can be printed on cardstock and laminate and kept at your small group meeting area.
The cards are broken down into four parts; stems to encourage others to participate, stems for clarifying, stems for building on, and stems for disagreeing.
Next, I have created posters to go along with those cards but have more sentence starters. There are nine posters and they are; clarifying, agreeing, disagreeing, building on, paraphrasing, summarizing, express an opinion, compliments, and offer suggestions.
The third component of this product is 11 Tenants for Discussion. This would make a great interactive bulletin board and reference. Please see the preview but this will help remind your kiddos of what good manners are and rules for discussion and engagement.
