Supporting Productive Science Talk: STEM Teaching Tool #48

OVERVIEW: You probably don’t need me to tell you this- but the STEMteachingtools.org site has created and curated an amazing set of resources for supporting the implementation of effective science teaching and learning through the NGSS. One of the latest tools in #48 titled: How can teachers guide classroom conversations to support students’ science learning? This tool makes the case for student science talk as not only an instructional move but as an equity move… and then provides a series of resources to support students (and teachers) who might just be starting this work and need some scaffolds and supports. The following tools are provided as links:

Talk Resource Cards Partner Conversational Supports Pre- and Post-Talk Writing Supports

PURPOSE: To provide guidance and tools to support teachers and students in engaging in productive science talk and thinking.

    I appreciate the link you shared in this sentence above, “One of the latest tools in #48 titled: How can teachers guide classroom conversations to support students’ science learning?” I feel that as a future educator, it is very important to lead student discussions and provide INQUIRY into the science classroom. Students can learn a lot from each other and share many different perspectives.
