Instructor: Kim Kittredge email@example.com
No matter what subject you teach or what topic you may bring up in class, having your students communicate with each other is key to a successful educational environment. The “Turn and Talk” is a way for students to share how they feel about a lesson, a quote, a story, a historical event, etc., by simply turning toward a neighbor and sharing ideas. This course will focus on how to use Turn and Talk ideas as a way for students to center their learning and focus on higher order thinking. Educators will practice the Turn and Talk so it can be modeled for their students as well as collaborate to create appropriate Turn and Talk topics. This course is designed for educators of all subject areas grades K-12.
