2 Minute Triad Talk” 3 people talk, while the fourth student observes their interaction.

Possible topics can be: “Why did you choose to go into this field?” or “Tell me about your current work or school situation.” As the first two students communicate, the observer, using Handout 8.3, should take notes on the body language, vocal cues, and minimal encouragers used by the listening student.
Question Tag: Soft ball questions
You are to ask a closed question as they throw the ball to a classmate. The classmate must answer quickly and toss the ball to someone else while asking that person a closed question. If a person asks a question that is not closed, he/she will have to sit down. The last person standing wins.
