This resource comes with a tracker that has 30 boxes with a blank line for you to put in students' names. It also comes with a very useful and effective key with symbols for tracking discussion. I have received amazing feedback at my school from colleagues that have used my accountable talk tracker.
Accountable talk is a very important aspect of a lesson. It is important to give your students time to have meaningful discussion with others about the lesson, their ideas, and their work. Listening to your students' discussion during or as part of the follow-up to an activity will enable you to assess their understanding. This can supplement or replace written feedback.
Since using this tracker, I have been able to get a sense of which students have a good understanding of the lesson and are able to carry on a meaningful discussion about it. I also can pinpoint which students may have challenges grasping the objectives of the lesson or may have challenges with having meaningful academic discussions with their peers.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my resource. I will be adding new resources to my store soon!
