Teacher talk should be 20% of class time. Student talk should be 80% of class time. These are not exact percentages for every class, but the brain needs to talk about learning. Students are social beings and need to discuss with peers learning that has taken place inside the classroom. Accountable Talk will support this effort. Accountable Discussions empower students to draw up arguments based on evidence. Students learn how to respect the views of their peers while strengthening their communication skills.
They get practice in being good conversationalists, participating in conversations in a polite manner. This training highlights the “how to” of getting students discussing in a manner that promotes learning.
