Project Information
Grade Level: 
Middle school (grades 6-8)
Resources I used:

So often students are not engaged in discussion. They may be quiet, afraid of being wrong, or simply not engaged in the learning. By using the talk moves, all students have to be actively engaged in the learning.

I am going to post these in the classroom.
