Talk About Understanding

Rethinking classroom talk to get at deeper understanding is difficult!! Ellin Keene’s book Talk About Understanding and video have helped us start to shape our thinking and intentions and talk around the “Cognitive Outcomes for Deeper Comprehension”.

At our next LCN Session on March 10, 2016 we will continue to learn together using Chapter 4, Immersed in Ideas, What does it mean to comprehend deeply in informational text? and Chapter 5, From the Inside, Integrating strategy instruction and informational outcomes.

Please use / integrate some of Ellin’s thinking with your work with students and/or as you support your colleagues.  We will share some of your experiences/learning with each other at our next session.
