Our Critical Discussion Activity teaches students the important rules and etiquette necessary for any group-based discussion. Aligned with Common Core Listening and Speaking Standards, students will learn how to conduct polite, critical, evidence-based discussions on any subject—from science, to literature, to math, to history and beyond. Included is a grading rubric that is suitable for both teacher and peer evaluation.
This lesson was not only teacher-created and classroom tested, it was successfully modeled in front of the California Superintendent of Schools!
