Are your whole-class discussions flopping? Are you searching for a way to engage ALL of your students? Do you want to mix things up with a new strategy that students will love? If so, then "Speed Dating" to the rescue!
"Speed Dating" is an engaging, student-centered discussion model that is low-prep & high-impact. In this activity, students will rotate through different peers and discussion questions/tasks -- which are up to you!
My students absolutely love it! After my first speed dating lesson, "Speed Debating," I knew I had to find a way to do this lesson again. So speed discussion was born...literary analysis speed dating...peer feedback speed dating...the list goes on! My point is this: This lesson can work for just about ANYTHING! If you can determine at least 15 discussion prompts/mini-tasks, then you are set.
