Speaking and listening are keys to developing disciplinary knowledge and skills. This webinar will assist teachers in understanding the two major clusters in the CCSS Speaking and Listening Standards: collaborative conversations and presentations of knowledge and ideas. Highlights will include ways to facilitate more focused, purposeful, collaborative conversations between students, and methods for fostering discourse. The second half will focus on ways students can present their knowledge more formally in face-to-face and digital environments. This will tie into the Reading and Writing Webinars that are also focusing on providing evidence that supports arguments and opinions.
