These posters have helped my discussions in class a lot! Every time a student answers a question, I call on someone else and they have to respond using these sentence stems! This helped with classroom management and discussions in class. Also when students talk with partners, the other partner ALWAYS has to respond to their partner using these sentence stems. This increased the engagement in partner talking in my classroom a lot!
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND USING THIS with partner discussions and whole group! It keeps your students more accountable.
