I just made my own set of classroom visuals to use with this strategy. I plan to use it in a classroom very similar to Mr. Lowe's.

Where can I find the class visuals he referred to during the lesson?

Thanks for sharing this. I find that students need steps for almost everything and I always struggle with how they communicate. Can't wait to use this in my Science Lab.

    TIPS & TRICKS: “Talk Moves” – Program Transcript

    TIPS & TRICKS: Paul Lowe – “Talk Moves”
    PROGRAM TRANSCRIPT
    Paul Lowe (Interview):
    “Talk Moves” is a strategy or a technique that you can use to improve and
    develop communication skills in the classroom.
    Lowe:
    Okay, Jackie, pass the ball to somebody else.
    “Talk Moves”
    Lowe (Interview):
    The Talk Moves basically is where you are developing ways to communicate.
    Lowe:
    Be ready to either say what somebody else said, word for word, or say it in your
    own words, or you might even disagree!
    Lowe (Interview):
    And we use this especially when we have a population of––I have 95% language
    learners. It starts off with ‘Revoicing,’ where a student repeats exactly what
    another student says.
    Lowe:
    Does anybody know anything about Memorial Day?
    Student:
    Yeah, they have, like, a big memorial only for that ship and all those people who
    died.
    Lowe (Interview):
    I found the ball to be a little bit more interactive. Kids that have a lot of energy
    need to get up and move around. It keeps their senses stimulated. And then
    ‘Restating’ is the second step, where you say what somebody else said in your
    own words.
    Student:
    That you remember about the soldiers that died.
    Lowe (Interview):
    The third step is when students apply their own reasoning.
    Lowe:
    Apply your own reasoning: Charles, do you agree or disagree with what Brian
    said, and why?
    Lowe (Interview):
    And this is where you get to disagree with what somebody else says: “Okay, well,
    I can hear that, and I can repeat that, then I can say it in my own words. Now, I
    can apply my own reasoning.” Well, it gives them the opportunity to speak and
    start developing communication with each other.
