    Three Before Me
    Split a large group into smaller groups with at least four in each group. Ask someone to volunteer to start the discussion with a question or a statement from their reading. S/he should cite the page on the text and comment on it. After the first person speaks, s/he cannot speak again until three more people have spoken about the topic in response to the question or statement that started the discussion.

    Have students stand in a big circle. Every other person should take one giant step inside the circle and turn around facing those in the outer circle. In other words, there should be two circles with the outer circle people facing inward and the inner circle people facing outward, and everyone should be face‐to‐face. Students in the outer circle begin by asking the student facing them on the inner circle a question. This question may be prepared by either the students themselves or the teacher. Once the inner circle student has had an opportunity to answer, either the outer or inner circle rotates and the process is repeated until a full rotation is made. Then, the inner circle has the opportunity to ask questions as the outer circle responds, and so forth.

    The Placemat Protocol is a structured format that promotes discussions within a small group that can then be shared with a larger group. Essentially, each small group has a piece of chart paper. They draw a circle in the center of the chart paper and then divide the outside into the number of people who are in the group - usually it's four so there are then four quadrants on the page. Each person individually writes their own thoughts, ideas, references from a text they have been reading, etc. in one of the quadrants. Then one member of the group facilitates a discussion and scribes the common points in the center circle,

    Materials Needed
    Colored Markers:Each group has 3-4 markers of different colors
    Placemats: Large pieces of butcher paper designed as follow {Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 7.25.07 AM.png} s
    Process
    Form mixed groups of 3 or 4.
    Each tablemate chooses a different colored marker.
    Simultaneously, each tablemate answers the first question posed in their section of the placemat. Allow one to two minutes.
    Rotate placemat clockwise providing a “new” section of the placemat for each tablemate.
    Simultaneously, each tablemate answers the next question posed in their “new” section.
    Rotate clockwise again.
    Continue the process described above until each tablemate has written in each section of the placemat.
    After each tablemate has written in each section of the placemat, a discussion takes place, based on what was written. In the center of the placemat, the table will summarize the main insight(s) they gained.
    Lastly, each table shares what they wrote in the center of their placemat with the larger group.
