Ideas to Foster Student Talk
Students learn best when they engage with the work of doing science themselves. One way teachers can foster deep student engagement is by giving them opportunities to talk about their ideas — not just to participate by responding to teacher questions.
Our newest teaching tool offers ten talk-focused activity formats to get students talking with one another. This tool not only offers these activity formats, it also includes an easy-to-use flowchart to offer context around when to use each format.
