Copy & Laminate this handy List of Diffusers to leave your students Brain-Dead when it comes to arguing with you. Do you have students who like to argue? How do you prevent from engaging in an argument? Diffuse the situation. Say one of these empathetic responses, and leave them with a question mark on their face. Printout on regular computer size printable paper. Each sheet will make you 2 Diffusers. Sometimes these are called Brain-Dead Phrases. I made these out of necessity to print, laminate, and put on my desk ~ so I'd be ready... Good Luck! Created by Tricks and Treats for Teaching Math. Please see my other great teaching resources.
