Part of our school plan is to increase student discussion in the classroom, and to encourage students to explain their thinking when problem solving.  One approach we are taking at Balmoral School is to practice discussing topics/issues with peers.

Our grade 3 and 4 students are using discussion cards to show them different ways to respectfully communicate with each other.  The goal is to give them a foundation for working collaboratively, and to instill confidence in their ability to think aloud with others.
