Description

Talk, Jot, Rotate is a cross between a Socratic Seminar and Speed “Dating” Debating. Students will answer 10 questions relating to important themes and concepts in McCarthy’s, The Road. The discussion is fast-paced because, with each new question, the students rotate their seating so they have a new partner every time.

Included in this product:

  • Teacher suggestions/instructions
  • Student instructions
  • 10 questions
  • Discussion worksheet
  • Self-Reflection worksheet

Note: I did not supply a rubric for this creative activity. This is in accordance with my educational philosophy as listed in my profile. Sometimes it's good to just let the students create and learn just for education's sake.
