- Discussion Strategies
Beyond Everyday Conversation
by: David Kehe and Peggy Dustin Kehe
Level: High intermediate to advanced, Secondary to Adult
Students enjoy developing skills needed at high academic
and business levels
Work in real discussion formats: pairs, triads, small
groups, large groups, whole class
Discussion topics are high-interest; no in depth background
knowledge is needed.
Each unit builds on and recycles previous strategies.
Clear step-by-step, focused practice of 13 discussion
skills: using rejoinders, asking follow-up questions, seeking/giving
clarification, using comprehension checks, soliciting and using details,
interrupting, expressing opinions, volunteering answers, referring
to information and opinion sources, helping discussion leaders, and
leading a discussion.
"We are really enjoying our e-books, and my students have gained a lot of confidence as a result of the practice that we have been doing. Our ESL program has been using both Conversation Strategies and Discussion Strategies for about the last 8 years and we love them! Our students are "hungry" to communicate with others especially now that they are learning remotely, so this has been a real godsend! I am working remotely with students building conversation skills."
