ConFluency Skills Introduction with
Introducing the ConFluency Card Game Skills without using Q-Cards
Introducing the ConFluency skills in small to large classes can be done with the following Activity Rounds. The activities are done in odd-numbered groups of 3 or 5 students, so that each student will alternate, not repeatedly duplicate, his or her skill practice.
Do each activity in the order listed. Students can usually get through 3 rounds in a 50 minute class. Students usually do better if you do a preview activity first (preparing a list questions and answers, and/or statements). Alternatively, a topic can be chosen (and brainstormed) to narrow the focus and vocabulary of the conversations.
Round 2: Introduces A + 1 Answer. A-san->B-san (A+1): Same as Round 1, but answer with a 2-part answer (Yes, I do. I like cake, too.). 2-3 rounds. Then, for speed, groups stand, do 2-3 rounds again, and sit down when finished. To help the students make 2-part answers, write on the blackboard, and introduce the usage of, And..../But,..../...don’t.../...,too.
