Instructional Ideas

  • Consider a role-playing activity in which two students demonstrate a balanced conversation, or an assignment for which learners must write a script or dialogue between two individuals who are respectfully participating in a discussion
Pros

  • Concept is thoroughly covered in the four worksheet pages
  • Questions would also serve as excellent discussion or writing prompts
Cons

  • The second page requires color for learners to indicate green light, yellow light, and red light; however, the resource is only offered in black and white (have learners color in the appropriate shades before beginning the worksheet)
