Classroom talk is a powerful tool for both teaching and learning. Rich, dialogic talk supports students in making sense of complex ideas and builds classroom communities centred around meaning-making.
'Talk moves' are the tools used by teachers to support rich, meaningful classroom discussion in mathematics.
Posters, flashcards and a chart have been created for teachers to use in the classroom. It aims to help prompt the following:
- wait time
- turn and talk
- adding on
- revise your thinking.
