Thought starters

  1. How does this strategy affect class culture?
  2. Ms. Todd came up with this strategy after noticing the talkativeness of her class. How could you use a positive strategy to respond to the needs of your class?

This is a great strategy. It allows students to have discussions and it allows them to share what there partner said.

I have actually started using a version of this in my classroom with my kinders. It is helping them pay attention to what everyone is saying. It is helping my students that have a hard time focusing for an extended period of time, pay attention better.

That was a great way to turn a talkative class into a valuable classroom discussion.

Update: So we've been using this strategy for awhile now and my 4th graders have evolved! They now often say things like "Derek said...and I agree with him because..." This additional opinion piece has come quite naturally and without any direct teaching. I love it!

    SHARE WHO SAID THAT TRANSCRIPT

    [01:00:00;00]
    TEACHER:
    Kind of at the beginning of the year, in September when we are just learning about each other and we are sharing ...

    [01:00:06;18] I noticed that this class really likes to talk, they really like to share

    TEACHER IN CLASS:
    Now turn and talk to a partner

    So I just added the piece in,
    can you share who said that idea so we can give them credit for it or so we can tell them great job.

    STUDENT
    What I said to my partner Tianna is that ...

    TEACHER
    and students are now using their partners names when they share

    [01:00:34;28]
    STUDENT
    I said like ... no .. .Omar said ...

    [01:00:41;24] TEACHER
    So it just became a habit in our classroom

    STUDENT
    I agree with Savanna because Hofsa said that ...

    TEACHER
    I know they love doing it because I taught them how to just give one student credit, just say one student’s name. But if they talk to for example a group of three students ...they give credit to all three students

    [01:01:02;03]
    STUDENT
    Me and Phoebe and Elissia and Derek said that...

    TEACHER
    So I feel like it gives their little group ownership of what they talked about in their conversation.

    TEACHER IN CLASS:
    Now talk to someone first ...
