Classroom Discourse That Makes Student Thinking Visible
Date: Monday, November 13, 2017
Duration: 60 minutes
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
