This worked really well during maths as Talk Moves strategy was adopted and used. This has promoted discussion and sharing of ideas and understanding. This was particularly successful as learners talk using talking frame - this is sentence starters. Learners are gifted with language to be able to express their thinking.
Feeling successful with it.
However, on the other hand, literacy did not go well. Lots of conversation but not much produced by learners. I have lots of hunches to why this is happening.
