Rules are needed for classroom discussions. Whenever a discussion is taking place, students will need to follow these rules in order for the goals of the discussion to get accomplished. If members of the group are being disruptive or rude, then that can bring negativity to a discussion. Others may not want to participate and the goals will not be met. In this quiz, students will answer questions about the rules of a classroom discussion.
