Reflection: Student Communication Cast Your Vote: Selecting Our Candidates - Section 1: Enroll Students Into Learning


Anytime I can, I make sure to incorporate times for my students to engage in conversation!  Whether it's a whole class discussion, or an opportunity to turn and talk to a neighbor or partner, I think incorporating opportunities for talking keeps kids engaged and motivated in our learning environment.  And, with the Speaking and Listening standards of the CCSS, this is a great way to always touch on those as well!  I love to keep 'em talking!
