How to Respond to Other's Comments or Ideas

Help your pupils respond to one another during a class discussion by providing some sentence starters. The handout includes a list of starters that will aid students as they agree with, comment on, disagree with, and add to the ideas of others. Individuals can keep this in their binders or notebooks to refer to during whole- and small-group discussions.
