This FREEBIE is the first lesson in my Academic Conversation Unit, which teaches students how and why it is important to converse respectfully and properly.
It is based off the book, "Academic Conversations: Classroom Talk that Fosters Critical Thinking and Content Understandings" By Jeff Zwiers and Marie Crawford.
This lesson begins the unit, by allows students to come up with classroom expectations of what is appropriate when talking to each other- specifically conversation rules.
Included in the interactive power point:
Higher level questions
Opportunities for students to talk
