DIBS STUDENT ACTIVITIES

DIBScussions

At DIBS, we have found that talking with students about their DIBS books increases participation. If you would like to have a guided conversation about DIBS with your students, our DIBScussion guide gives you a place to record your students’ answers.

For more independent students, they can fill them out themselves.
