Our Rules and Roles for Discussion lesson plan teaches students about a number of rules and roles for having and preparing for discussions. During this lesson, students are asked to work in a group to present on a topic provided by their teacher; each student is assigned a role in the discussion and preparation of the discussion and then answer questions about their role. Students are also asked to match the discussion rule(s) that were not followed with various discussion excerpts, demonstrating their understanding of each rule.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to follow agreed-upon rules for discussions and carry out assigned roles.
