For classroom talk to promote learning it must be accountable: to the learning community, to accurate and appropriate knowledge, and to rigorous thinking. Accountable Talk classrooms are filled with talk that seriously responds to and further develops what others in the group have said.
The pack is all black and white for easy printing. You can use these as
individual posters for whole group or you can make each one of your
students a set for themselves. Just print four to a page, laminate then
put on a ring for students to keep to use during whole group, small
group or partner talk.
The more students use Accountable Talk the more they will be engaged
in a respectful and rigorous classroom!
