Use in-class writing tasks or small group discussion to prime students for discussion.
- At the beginning of class, or during a lull in conversation, ask students to do a short writing task or small group discussion.
- This ensures that everyone’s attention is focused on the issue at hand and has the opportunity to prepare a contribution for discussion.
- Small group discussions can allow students to check their ideas with a peer and to share comments or ask questions that they would hesitate to ask in front of the whole class.
