Stop Using “Discuss” As A Verb in Curriculum

“Discuss.”

“Remind.”

“Explore.”

These are less helpful verbs in a curriculum than:

“Say:”

“Ask.”

“Instruct.”

This is what I’m trying to get better about in writing curriculum, now only for Zoom: employing  verbs that are concrete and specific, so that the person leading (including me, in the future) doesn’t have more work to do.

  1. Hooray! I grew up hearing “discuss” used at home as something two or more people did — “Your mother and I will have to discuss what to do” — but then faced test “questions” that asked me to read a fact and discuss it. Just me, on paper. Explaining, sure — but discussing, nope.
