Lesson 6

World Cafe'

What is World Cafe'?

World Cafe' is a protocol that helps students to make sure they are having academic conversations with many different students in the class and also gives many students the opportunity to be a leader.

How can we make sure it works?

  • Pay attention to what you are supposed to be doing!
  • If you are the leader for this round, take the responsibility to get the discussion going!
  • If you are not the leader for the round, contribute to the conversation!
  • Stay on task! Keep the discussion on the topic it should be on.
  • When you have to move, do it without delay!

How does it work? We organize the questions to discuss in "rounds".

When we are all finished, we will record what we have learned through discussion.
