Sarah Michaels does an exquisite job describing for us how to use the NGSS science and engineering practices as as leverage for teaching science. This is especially true in elementary school science. Implementing classroom talk is a huge shift in the way many of us have been instructing our students, Not only do we need to give ourselves permission to make 'talk' a critical part of instruction, we need to learn how to do it. Sarah shared some excellent resources to help us make this shift. When we figure out how to do this I think we will be seeing and hearing a spectacular fireworks display in our classrooms. When we are engaged in "talk practices" we will be addressing science, literacy and mathematics. Talk about bang for your buck!

This 90 minute web presentation was excellent because the presenter boiled down the practices to a perspective of students using supporting evidence which makes it a perfect place to begin. Thanks.
