Discussion Builders Poster, Grades 2-3 (Spanish Version)
By talking to learn, students who engage in successful classroom discussions can better express ideas, raise questions, develop keen listening skills, and expand on challenging subject matter.
The grades 2-3 Discussion Builders poster and teaching guide are designed to cultivate a respectful community of learners where the goal is to develop shared understandings. Sentence stems on the poster provide students with a scaffold for voicing their ideas and questions, valuing others’ contributions, and thinking creatively.
The poster is a powerful tool for helping students–specifically Spanish speakers–present, expand, and reason about important ideas. A teaching guide includes tasks and blackline masters for introducing and sustaining the use of Discussion Builders in any subject area.
This poster is one in a set of three: K-1, 2-3, and 4-8. As a set, the Discussion Builders posters and teaching guides scaffold progressively more sophisticated language and reasoning across the grades.
Participate in our one-day Discussion Builders Workshop, which will further enhance your ability to lead effective discussions that boost collaborative and respectful critical thinking among your students.
