One of the greatest challenges facing ESL students is the advanced speaking class in which the most confident students
dominate the discussion and the more reticent students quickly withdraw. Discussion Starters helps balance the oral
participation of all the students in the class, promoting an environment in which everyone has not only the opportunity
but a real need to speak out. Each unit contains exercises that provide speaking interaction about a central topic or idea.
In most of these activities, students must work together in pairs or small groups to reach a conclusion about a topic.
The activities and tasks in Discussion Starters are real situations from all over the world. Contemporary political and
social topics enable students to engage in lively dialogue about issues they face in their daily lives, such as smoking
regulation, the environment, and multiculturalism.
30 reproducible interactive word/board game grids filled with useful words created from weelky school, work, home and community units. Encourages lots of fun speaking and leadership skills. A game students love.
