The brochure provides a multitude of ways for educators to use these questions-stem cards including: planning a discussion within a lesson, hooking students’ interest, and designing a culminating activity to name a few. Suggestions for student and parent uses are offered as well. The Q3 Cards and their limitless possibilities equip teachers with tools that elicit critical and higher-level thinking from their students.

    Hi John, I met you at TAGT last year and you told me I’d love this resource. Well you were right! Our Coordinator is now going to buy a set for all of our G/T Specialists.

    I’m a fourth grade teacher in Texas and I introduced D&C to my students in the Fall of 2016. I use the Icon Cards and Q3 Cards in my classroom daily. I cannot begin to tell you the difference in my students. They are excited to THINK! I only wish I had these resources when I was a student.

    I just ordered my second set. I love these cards. My high schoolers have to use these stems for their Socratic Seminars every Wednesday in English.
