There are many ways beyond just asking and answering questions to give students a voice in classroom discussions. Join this session for a lively discussion on the Digital Promise Powerful Learning Principles and to learn discussion protocols that ensure every learner is engaged. Discussion protocols will include Snowball, Plant the Seed, and Save the Last Word. Participants will also reflect upon how these discussion protocols apply Universal Design for Learning to meet the needs of all learners by providing options for recruiting interest. Prerequisite knowledge of UDL is not required to participate in this session.
