  • Address: 7000 W Doe Ave, Suite A Willow Room

Have you thought about how your learning has been influenced by your interactions with others?

How has conversation helped develop your own learning?

Oral language is a cornerstone on which we build our literacy and learning throughout life. Future citizens - our students - need to use a variety of critical thinking skills in order to build complex ideas and solve problems with others. Academic conversations help students focus on a topic and explore content through the building, challenge, and negotiation of ideas.

Attend this professional learning opportunity and discover:

  • Updated research on how academic conversations result in greater student engagement, creativity, and sense of agency.
  • Approaches for designing conversation tasks that foster critical thinking in all disciplines.
  • Classroom activities that integrate conversation with content learning.

Upon registration, each participant will receive a copy of Academic Conversations.
