Share the airspace. Listen for periods. Connect to someone else’s idea. Respectful disagree by using “I” statements. Use the text “On page… it says that…” Resisting saying “anything that comes to mind” Use Teacher Talk- practice sounding super smart Invite people into the conversation “Laura, what do you think?” If you are mad, think first, speak third Rewind, reword

Group students (4-5), assign roles A-C are talkers, D is observer. Observer keeps the talkers on task. Does not participate in conversation, but says things like “We’re getting off topic” or “B hasn’t had a turn yet” Students are given a task such as answering a question, providing opinions, solving a problem. Every student gets the same number of coins. When you take your turn, you put one coin in the hat. Goal= to get rid of all of your coins.
