Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Ushering in Accountable Talk - Section 3: Closure


I love the idea of Accountable Talk.  The kids enjoyed it, and it's something I intend to begin in my classroom the first week of school next year.  The inservice we had on this topic was in October, which is still early in the year, but I truly think the technique is one that will be better embraced when introduced as a component of the classroom initially.  The silliness from the kids will most likely not be a factor once it's a classroom expectation from the beginning.
