Let’s discuss discussion! At the high school level we get a spectrum of student involvement when it comes to talking in class. Throw in social distancing/online learning you have a different set of challenges. This hour will focus on whether or not students are engaged when they are asked to discuss topics. Reflect on the previous year of what went well and the challenges to engage student's willingness to speak in class.
