In groups you will present to your classmates a GLOBAL topic of your choice (and that I approve) through an interactive class discussion. An interactive class discussion is defined as a discussion in which people are engaged in discourse as well as in an activity to enhance understanding (they can occur simultaneously or in segments as best fits the demands of the topic).
Teacher Notes: I use a construction paper card with red on one side and green on the other to help these discussions. Each student receives a card and when they have spoken twice, they may flip their card to red.
This template includes explicit instructions, detailed rubrics and a game plan for absent kids. I love it. Enjoy!
