What it is and How it Works

Professional Development
PDPs: 
10

Description

We will explore the concept of accountable talk (AT) and student voice from the vantage point of its extraordinary benefits. We will establish a working definition of AT, explore its connections to learning language and content, and ultimately learn concrete but rich ways of implementing practices in our daily work with students.

Audience and Grade Level

Teachers; Grades K-12

Credits

10 PDPs will be awarded to participants upon completion of this training, in addition to outside assignments (as per DESE regulations). Note that these PDPs will count toward the ELL-related requirement for recertification.
