Though most students LOVE to talk, sometimes students need guidance to learn how to appropriately contribute to a larger conversation.

Enter these 48 task cards of sentence starters! Based on the expectations of Common Core standards in SL.1 for grades 7-12, these prompts are divided into four tiers (basic, intermediate, "including others", and advanced) to help scaffold students into talking collaboratively, referring to sources, and trying to come to a consensus.

These cards will be especially useful for students who are shy, unfocused, or unfamiliar with the nature of a formal whole-class discussion.

(Psst: The best part is, they're purposely small enough to fit in the palm of your hand... great if a shy student wants to discreetly use them!)

This 7-page PDF inludes:

• A teacher instructions page with tips for use

• 4 pages of premade cards, ready to print and cut out

• A blank template so you can add your own!

NOTE: This download is NOW EDITABLE! Previous versions were not. Please keep this in mind when reading buyer feedback.
