These cards are great for increasing the quality and quantity of student participation! The smaller cards can be printed out (lamination recommended) and distributed to students to give them prompts to help form their ideas in class discussions. These prompts FORCE students to provide some sort of reasoning or evidence for their ideas. In my classroom, I print the cards on different colors (i.e. blue for sharing ideas, green for agreeing, and red for disagreeing) so that I can easily tell what kind of thought they want to share when they raise their card. Additionally, I have included larger posters if you would like to post these in your room.
