PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Jump-start your unit or revive the middle of it with these discussion activities, designed to get kids moving and talking!

Most of the questions are thematically related, general level ones that are easy for kids to relate to. Others are text-specific and require students to dig deep into what the text said, and infer why. These activities can be assessed for grade-specific CCSS speaking standards for whole-class discussions.

After you use these as in-class activities, these questions can all be reused as assessment questions on quizzes, tests, journals, or essays later on! Let the discussion become a formative dialogue for higher-stakes assessment later.

This download includes 22 pages/slides:
• Anticipation Guide (1 page): Uses before and after columns to capture how student thinking changes over time, and includes 20 agree/disagree questions to provoke reactions
• Four Corners (12 slides): Send kids moving to the four corners of the room based on whether or not they agree with the10 posted questions, and let the debate begin!
• Socratic Seminar (8 slides and 1 page): Includes directions to conduct the whole-class discussion and 5 text-dependent questions to analyze the events of the novel.
