10 things to say to your Students Everyday… and Why they are Important
Ron Ritchhart has constructed this list of things to do every day to create a culture in our classrooms where student thinking is valued. These suggestions each take a short amount of time to implement in the classroom but will make a large impact over an entire school year.
Teachingchannel has a wealth of videos that show best practice instruction and how to implement it in our classrooms. You can search by subject, grade, and topic. I found this video on using talk moves to improve discourse. Check it out: https://www.teachingchannel.org/videos/student-participation-strategy
Please let me know how I can continue to assist you in making your classrooms a place for deep thinking and learning! I would love to help you implement some of the new routines or questioning strategies listed above.
