In this series of videos, I invite participants to explore the concept, meaning, and implementation of “accountable talk” in the classroom.
Part Three: Rigorous Thinking
In part three of the workshop, we explore how accountable talk also applies to students holding each other to high academic standards. I use rubrics to let my students know that there is a standard for all aspects of accountable talk in my classroom. Finally, we develop our own discussion stems to foster effective communication.
