Academic Conversations: Strengthening Thinking and Reasoning Skills through Conversation 6-12

Participants in this session enjoyed some great conversations around the article from the November 2014 Educational Leadership, Talking to Learning by Elizabeth City.  After a review of the basic principles of paraphrasing they used the conversation protocol of Three A’s Plus One to process their thinking and learning.

The powerpoint of the slides are available through this link.

During our next session on February  26th, six  participants will facilitate round table discussions around their learning and application of  “Academic Conversations” to their work.
