Ask Student A: tell me a compliment for Mario/ Stella/Jihad/ or other. Ok. What is something that you can add to that statement? Is that a question or a descriptive statement? Other CCQ, I will add either a question or a descriptive statement depending on the previous response. This is called a FOLLOW UP QUESTION/ FOLLOW UP DETAIL Compliment + follow up question.
