Do your students know how to disagree? Certainly. But, can they do it in a respectful manner during a classroom discussion?
If not, these NINE full-size (8.5 x 11) speech bubble “mini-posters” are for you.
Adapted from the work of Kate Kinsella, they include nine sentence starters / sentence stems that students can use during a classroom discussion to:
1. Agree with a classmate’s point, and build upon it
2. Respectfully disagree
3. Make connections
*FREE BONUS – Comic book style student handout that includes all 9 speech bubbles. See this products “Preview”
My students paste the handout in their composition books for easy reference during classroom discussions.
****Who knew that middle schoolers could be so courteous? (Works for upper elementary and high school students, too).
