Product Description
Many teachers have experienced times when they have set up a discussion activity only to launch it to…well, silence. The students look uncomfortably at each other, stare at their hands or mumble to a stop after only seconds of talking.

This resource aims to address that by providing a lively activity that can be used to discuss any text, concept or topic.

The resource includes:
* top tips on how to encourage discussion amongst reluctant students
* 3 sheets of discussion prompts to be used as cards or grids
* detailed notes on how to use the discussion prompts in different ways

Use this resource to address the following Common Core strands:
CCRA.SL.1: Prepare for and participate effectively in a range of conversations and collaborations with diverse partners, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively.
CCRA.SL.3: Evaluate a speaker’s point of view, reasoning, and use of evidence and rhetoric.
CCRA.SL.4: Present information, findings, and supporting evidence such that listeners can follow the line of reasoning and the organization, development, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
CCRA.SL.6: Adapt speech to a variety of contexts and communicative tasks, demonstrating command of formal English when indicated or appropriate.

Keywords: discussion, discuss, reluctant speakers, talk, group work, pair work, shy students, prompts.
