Powering Up Language and Literacy Through Constructive Conversations for All: K-12 with Jeff Zwiers

All students need to develop skills for engaging in face-to-face conversations in school about academic content. They need skills of clarifying, supporting, and arguing ideas with others. This presentation will focus on improving teacher practices for developing oral language and conversation skills for and through the teaching of content and literacy. Participants will engage in activities and learn classroom-ready strategies to improve students’ speaking and paired conversations that are focused on text-based understandings and critical thinking.
