If you are looking for a fantastic resource for having dynamic classroom discussions, look no further! This set of discussion starters is great for whole class or small group settings.
Whether we are discussing a scientific experiment, historical event, mathematical equation, or a novel, we all know how difficult it can be at times to have an in-depth discussion in class. Inevitably there are one or two students who try to dominate the conversation, while there are others who would just as soon blend into the background and not say a word. It can be challenging to make sure everyone takes part. This set of discussion starter cards is designed to make that easier.
The set comes with four different prompts, each with three different formats in both color and black and white which can be printed on cardstock or copy paper, either white or different colors.
Because these cards help eliminate the possibility of one person dominating the conversation they are especially useful with small groups.
