00:02:20 STACY BREWER: Two fingers if you have something to add onto what somebody has already said TEXT:
2 fingers = “I have something to add”
00:02:24 and thumbs up if you have something new to say, right? TEXT:
thumbs up = “I have something new to say”
00:02:27 BOY: Yeah.
00:02:28 STACY BREWER: Alright, Alan you have something new.
00:02:30 ALAN E.: [inaudible] when they, when they told him to leave the horses, I thought they were going to steal them.
00:02:38 STACY BREWER: In order to add something to what somebody else said, you have to be actively listening to what that person said to know that it makes a connection with what someone said.
00:02:49 GIRL: I had something to add about the horses to Alan E. They weren’t going to steal them. They actually asked the chief if they could have some horses.
00:03:01 STACY BREWER: The strategy has been really effective because raising your hand wasn’t enough. It gives students an opportunity to show me that they have something to say, but it also asks for a little bit more information.
00:03:12 STACY BREWER: They have to tune in to know is this something new, has this already been said before, or am I adding onto what my partner just said?
00:03:23 STACY BREWER: Elisa.
00:03:24 ELISA: I’m going to add onto Natalia’s.
00:03:26 STACY BREWER: You want to add onto what we were just talking about? [inaudible words]
00:03:30 BOY: yes, um, um.
00:03:30 STACY BREWER: Jesus.
00:03:31 JESUS: Um, on page 638 at the bottom…
00:03:35 STACY BREWER: That was great how you guys jumped in and tried to clarify and added your own evidence and thinking to that.
