Assign digital theme-based speaking prompts for homework or to help with placement. Choose a theme that you are working on or one that your students are interested in. Each theme has three questions. Students have up to two minutes to record a response for each question before submitting. Teachers can leave digital written feedback.

This resource includes sensitive questions about complex themes. Teacher discretion is advised.
