Math Talk Moves are a growing trend in the Common Core movement across the nation. However, these valuable moves such as restating, reasoning, repeating, adding on, waiting, and turn/talk are useful moves to create student generated discussions in all content areas.
In my music classroom my students regularly refer to the poster set hanging on my wall when discussing music they are listening to, composers and their music, and during error analysis at the smart board. Using these talk moves allows me to step back and watch the discussion bounce from one student to the next without leading students down my path to discovery and instead allowing to grapple with finding their own.
