Product Description
This silent discussion looks at primary sources in Mesopotamia (especially Sumer and Babylon). Provides tools to help analyze primary sources and several prompts for students to think of.

- Five Primary Source Readings
- Exit Card

The silent discussion strategy uses writing and silence as tools to help students explore a topic in-depth. Having a written conversation with peers slows down students’ thinking process and gives them an opportunity to focus on the views of others. This strategy also creates a visual record of students’ thoughts and questions that can be referred to later in a course. Using the Big Paper strategy can help engage shy students who are not as likely to participate in a verbal discussion.
