We have been working on accountable talk in our classroom. To help the students remember their accountable talk during a discussion I have posted the prompts around our board. They have moved throughout the classroom each year but students still use them. You can head here to download a free set that fits your classroom theme.
I can really see a difference during discussions, and the kids seem more confident when they discuss the text.
Wonderful post! We will be linking to this great article on our website.Keep up the great writing.
