NEW RESOURCES ---Student Discourse

Student Discourse, or students talking on-topic in an academic environment, is vital to language acquisition, student engagement and ultimately student achievement.

Student discourse can happen at the partner, group, whole class or student-to-teacher level.

Student discourse routines need to be explicitly taught to students and reinforced in order to be most effective.

The student who has spied the object can only answer "yes" or "no" to student questions. Circle keeper counts the questions. At ten questions, keeper can ask the student for a clue. At twenty questions if the circle hasn't guessed the object, the student tells the circle what it was.
