Hello! Welcome to my store!
There is such a huge push this year for authentic conversations in classrooms, at least in my school. In this 58 page bundle, I have included all of the tools I use for successful classroom conversation.
Table signs for discussion leaders
Basic Accountable talk prompts that can be used for all subject areas
Prompts to further discussion- when kids get stumped and don't know where to take the conversation
All of the different types of discussion protocols I use in my room- each is explained in a circle that I like to laminate and display in my room. I select the one we will be using for the day and stick it to my white board so the kids know what to expect.
Graphic organizers for the discussions (when appropriate)
Rubrics for the discussion (two forms that are very general and can be applied to any of the included discussion types.
A discussion checklist- a basic, alternative assessment for the kids to use instead of a rubric.
A discussion reflection sheet where the kids can write and reflect about how their discussion went and plan changes for next time.
