“Students will discuss…”

Here is help to make this learning objective more specific!

This podcast/ reading contains 15 strategies for structuring a class discussion; they are separated into three groups:

  • higher-prep strategies - require teachers to do some planning or gathering of materials ahead of time
  • low-prep strategies - can be used on the fly when you have a few extra minutes or just want your students to get more active  
  • ongoing strategies - smaller techniques that can be integrated with other instructional strategies and don’t really stand alone

For each strategy, there is a description of its basic structure, and an explanation of variations that exist, if any.

To watch each strategy in action, click on its name and a new window will open with a video that demonstrates it.
