white board
10 minutes
Directions: Write the following on your white board, but do not give the class any explanation:
+—
Ask individual students a series of questions, see below for examples. If the student answers in
a complete sentence, add a slash under the + sign. If the student gives a one word answer, add
a slash under the — sign.
At some point, ask students if they can guess the difference between the answers that get a “+”
sign and those that get a “—” sign.
Question examples:
Have you had a good day?
Did you have fun at the football game?
Do you have plans for the weekend?
Where did you place in the competition?
bullseye!
One word answers can sound like a young child;
developing the skill to answer in complete
sentences will help students come across as
thoughtful and well educated.
