STEP 6: HAVE STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN STRUCTURED CONVERSATIONS

  1. Read the statement.
  2. Move to the side of the room that has the percentage that you agree with.
  3. Share with the group.
  4. Use the stem: I think that ....is the percentage of time spent on student talk/academic conversations because...


•Only ____of English Learners’ school day is spent engaging in student talk.


•Only ____of English Learner’s day is spent discussing focal lesson content, speaking in complete sentences or applying relevant academic language.

Example:

Freeze and Speak (p.65)


•Students engage in a dialogue

•Two points of view

•Freeze

•Replace one member of the team

•Continue conversation

Is this a good example of an academic conversation?

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN “STRUCTURED CONVERSATIONS” AND SIMPLY CALLING ON STUDENTS RANDOMLY?

•Much more engaging because the process includes 100% student participation.


•Provides enough structure to get all students involved both physically and mentally.


•Maximizes “engagement” time in the classroom and minimizes single-student responses.

STEP 7: HAVE STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN STRUCTURED READING AND WRITING ACTIVITIES

•Reading and writing activities should be purpose-driven and strategies selected should scaffold the types of thinking that need to occur for complete understanding.


•Clearly define the purpose, plan and the process for each activity.


•Students gain a deeper understanding of content concepts.

Is this a good example?
