However, as much as students love having an open forum to share their thoughts, there are only so many “open discussions” we can have before the format gets bored and redundant.
This resulted in lazy speaking, relying on their partner too much, getting away with “I don’t know, it depends” and general apathy during speaking practice which could potentially be the most interesting and engaging part of the class.There is a small amount of prep that goes into this. It just made more logistical sense in my classroom.First, I created an overview sheet that explained the concept to my students and included a graphic organizer for them to fill out to give them some accountability. Set up the desks and then divide your class into two groups, one that stays sitting and one that rotates. Again, I used a simple graphic organizer that I assigned to my kids through Google Classroom.I had a timer going on the board and for 2 minutes they had to have “lids down” and just have a conversation.After that, I gave them 1 minute to briefly record their thoughts on the organizer.
