Restorative Talk in Your Classroom: How Teachers Can Use Accountable Talk, Protocols, Goals, and Peer and Self-Evaluation to Support Restorative Academic Talk and Social Emotional Growth.
Audience: 4-12 Classroom Teachers and Administrators
Presenter: Dr. Deborah Brady, Co-author of Instructional Practices That Maximize Student Achievement, of SEL in the Classroom, and SEL in the Home
Proven accountable talk, pair, group, and team methods for teaching all students can support the learning of at-risk students. When students work with others and talk through ideas, they become more engaged and improve their literacy skills (reading, writing, speaking, and listening). This practical workshop provides examples of how to use goal setting and protocols (Save the Last Word for Me or micro-labs), accountable talk, sentence frames, proven activities such as Get the Gist, Jigsaws, and even the 7-minute Socratic in a Fish Bowl can support students’ literacy, engagement, and social-emotional (habits of work) growth. Teachers will leave with tools: rubrics, activators, summarizers, and research-based activities that they can adapt and use in their classrooms. Participants receive a copy of Dr. Brady’s book Social-Emotional Learning in the Classroom. Participants also receive templates, protocols, rubrics, and access to a website with further classroom materials.
Member Fee & Member Guest $230 each and Non Member Fee $250 each (includes a copy of book) Team of 3 or More $200 each
