When it comes to the classroom, there’s another way to think about getting “outside.” It’s what we mean when we ask students to make their learning explicit, to take what’s churning inside and make it visible.

See how Ms. Simpson uses “talk moves” to give students the language to take their great responses and make them public for all to share.
