Classroom Talk: Getting Students Speaking and Listening Grades 3-6
What in the world is this--and why is "Accountable Talk" such a buzzword these days?
With the increased need for students to learn to have quality academic discussions and to be comfortable speaking in front of others, I wanted to create a fun way for students to gain confidence when speaking about different topics. Want to have students practice in a morning meeting? In small groups? With partners? As a formal public speaking exercise? As a prewriting experience? You can use this resource for all of these!
I wanted to design a resource that could be used in countless ways…I will give you some suggestions, but I am CONFIDENT that you will be able to come up many other uses as well!
What is included?
--140 Discussion prompt cards in three categories :
Personal narratives (to build the idea of telling stories with characters, a logical sequence, and feelings) 32 cards
--Opinions (to help students state an opinion and defend it clearly with examples) 32 cards
--Just a word (or 2) (to let students speak in ANY genre on a topic)
--Just a word (or 2) CHALLENGE (these concepts are more challenging and may be more appropriate for older students) 24 cards
--A variety of reproducibles, posters, and checklists to help you teach key concepts to guide your students
--Suggestions for use
I hope you and your students enjoy this resource!
