Toolkit for dialogues

We have a useful toolkit for dialogues. Please make the following cards and show them in the classroom.

What? What is this? What do you mean?
Who? Who is that? Who is she/he.
Where? Where we are? Where did you go?
When? When was that?  When did you go there?

Reason? Why do you think so?
Cause? Why does it happen?
Purpose? Why/For what purpose did you do it?

Example Then could you give an example?

For example, what happens in this case?(imagination/inference)

Counter Example But, do we have an example like this? (imagination/refutation)

But listen, when do we have a case/an occasion/a person like this?

If you want to say or heard the word, “always”, “all”, can you think a counter example?

Agreement  I agree with A, because….

     (Please give a reason.)

Disagreement I don’t agree with, because….

     (Please give a reason.)

Let’s divide questions into 4 rooms

Class Number  Name(    )          

Let’s divide your questions into 4 rooms and choose an appropriate question for discussion and inquiry!

Four question-Rooms:

the first q-room/the room of looking and seeing

When we look into books, we can find the answer.

the second q-room/the room of brainstorming

Any sensible answer may do.

the third q-room/the room of asking experts

When we interview experts, they can give the answer.

the forth q-room/the room of inquiry

On discussing the question, we can broaden and deepen our thoughts.
