Presented by Jon Saphier

A key skill used by high-gain teachers to communicate high expectations for all learners is creating a talk environment of robust student-to-student discourse. Join Jon Saphier, author of High Expectations Teaching, to learn the key teaching moves that create rigorous student dialogue, where students talk more than teachers and display a high level of thinking. 

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What to say and do to develop a safe and supporting climate for making errors and risk-taking
  • How to shift the classroom dynamic from the teacher listening to and interacting with just one student at a time to everyone listening to each other and contributing to each other’s thinking
  • How to inject rigor into classroom discussions to accelerate learning for low-confidence students
