A Unit on Discussion Skills. Students and Teachers Develop English Curriculum.
Bogorad, Hope C.
This unit on discussion skills was designed for junior high school students who have elementary discussion skills. The two primary student objectives are: (1) to be able to express themselves openly, but without hurting the feelings of other people; and (2) to improve their discussion skills. The 12 lessons in the unit focus on freedom of expression in the classroom, reaching a consensus, evaluating a discussion, the role of a discussion chairperson, group interactions, small group discussion, and writing of discussion questions. Complete lesson plans, copies of the materials used, descriptions of the procedures, and short comments on the difficulties and progress experienced during each lesson are provided in the guide. (TO)
