Workshop - Student-Talk: The Value for Your Students and their Learning

Feb 08, 2019 - 01:30 pm

Teachers typically dominate classroom discussions and talk the majority of instructional time.  Research demonstrates giving students ample time to produce language through discussion, affords learners deeper processing of content and literacy.  Providing students frequent opportunities to speak and listen to each other allows them to negotiate meaning, become aware of multiple perspectives, and frame ideas for writing.  We will review the research on the importance of student-talk and the impact of certain strategies.  Participants will practice research-based strategies to improve productive student-talk and meaningful discussion.
