These pieces were made to accompany the Conversation Tree activity
From Michelle Winner Garcia’s conference and based on her books Thinking about YOU Thinking about ME and Inside Out: What Makes a Person with Social Cognitive Deficits Tick? www.socialthinking.com
Each student gets their own set of colored question cards and comment cards. The teacher or students pick a topic of conversation and the conversation begins in a back and forth turn-taking style. The goal is to have a tree that is colorful, very tall and balanced (not lopsided with too many comments/questions of one color) When an off-topic comment is made we put a branch instead of a colorful card. A tree without branches sticking out all over is the goal.
