Which strategies will be the most effective with your content? “Grab and Go” Idea #1 Starter Phrases Starter phrases are useful when traveling on Creativity Road 1. They are easy to use, can be used to substitute for an existing verb, and can be used with simple or complex content. If targeting fluency, use starter phrases such as the examples given here, and connect them to your content. Remember, a fluency prompt means the teacher is looking for many responses. Fluency starter phrases direct students to list or orally respond to the following: • • • • • • • • • • Situations in which something might occur Ways to do something Things that serve a similar purpose Other uses for an object or invention Things that come to mind when a word, person, or situation is mentioned Words that relate to the same object or concept Ways to express a similar idea New ways to do something Questions to ask about a new concept or information Consequences of a particular turn of events • Words that describe an object or event If targeting flexibility, the brainstorming activity becomes more specific and focused.
