Reflection: Student Ownership The Little Red Hen and a Beginning, Middle, and End - Section 2: Read Aloud and Discussion of the Story


     What really made this a deep lesson was that I made my students continually talk to their partners.  I use the term accountable talk.  You may use the word discourse.  It doesn't matter what term you use, just as long as students are able to grapple with the concepts in the text, state their opinion and be able to disagree with others and talk about why they disagree with someone.  By talking about the content so deeply I really believe this furthered my student's understanding that much more.  I certainly am no expert in accountable talk but as I continue to implement this in my classroom, I am seeing how this is benefiting my students each day.
