Academic conversation develops deep comprehension: Using the skills
from By David Irwin
Academic conversation is a strategy that increases student engagement and comprehension in content topics. It is ideal for English learners because it gives them a safe environment to practice academic English with a peer who has more mastery. In first part of this series, we explained the norms for setting up academic conversations and how to organize partnerships in the classroom. Once the content has been delivered, students need skills on how to actually hold the conversation.
