You want your class to meet all of the Common Core standards, and here is one way to tackle the first speaking and listening standard. Given a theme to focus on from "How Much Land Does a Man Need?" by Leo Tolstoy, small groups come up with questions that correspond with each level of Bloom's Taxonomy and formulate responses. After several days of practice, the whole class participates in a fish bowl discussion. Before or after this activity, quickly test the standard with the provided vocabulary matching quiz.
