5 ways you can establish purposeful talk in your classroom

7/5/2015

Purposeful talk in the classroom is a process that provides students with a means of thinking out loud, engage with ideas and co-constructing ideas.  Purposeful talk is clearly linked to the development of student understanding and learning.

Purposeful talk

 

Encourage purposeful talk by:

  1. Select texts carefully
  2. Promoting rich discussion of texts
  3. Provide a supportive environment with established norms for purposeful talk
  4. Model and explicitly teach the necessary skills for listening and talking
  5. Invite students to reflect on their talking behaviours or their meanings constructed.

Contact Learning Exchange to borrow the book ‘Comprehension through conversation: The power of purposeful talk in the reading workshop’.
