Nowadays, all ages of students need to not just say yes or no to a question, they also need to explain themselves. This deductive reasoning skill is essential to our students reaching their goal of graduating high school. One thing I've created to help in this area is short and sweet and gives the teacher a snap shot as to how their students are critically thinking. I found that for ESL students, it's especially important to go over this sheet with them first. Doing this as a small group activity with your beginning to early-intermediate ESL students would be a good idea.
