I love this idea, but how long is it going to take to implement from a practical perspective... how many children will pass through the system before we can implement?

12 Steps to Get Students Talking #Studentdiscourse

As a beginning math teacher, I thought that student discourse happened when they answered my questions or asked me questions. Then one day I asked my students an interesting question, and it was like a Ping-Pong match erupted in my room. One student answered, another disagreed, and then the rest of the class chose sides and began debating back and forth! The level of engagement and thinking was incredible and wow, did we have fun!


In trying to replicate this kind of student talk, I have learned that the tools, lesson structure, and topic do not matter. What the teacher does to encourage discourse and communicate high expectations for the level of discourse matters. Consider yourself a maker of experiences more than a giver of knowledge, and train students to question authority and expect answers from each other. It sounds complex, but from research and my work with teachers, I offer 12 small steps that will help teachers transform their classrooms into centers of student discourse.
