The Weekly Knot
Issue 40: Thoughts to Ponder
ESOL Tip of the Week
During our Faculty Meeting last week we discussed the importance of student talk. In order for our students to improve their language skills, we must encourage extended discourse, as well as teach them to use specific and technical content vocabulary when speaking. During our meeting, the WIDA Speaking Rubric that is used to score the speaking portion of ACCESS was referenced. This rubric can help us to analyze student talk and begin our work to move our students towards higher level speaking skills. As you read over the rubric, consider how you may be able to use it in your classroom.
