Walk and Talk

Mode of Instruction: Partner           Purpose: Movement and Communication

Objective: To implement tasks that promote reasoning, students respond to questions or prompts about a topic while walking. The teacher monitors for multiple points of entry into a topic.

To promote movement during learning, partners receive a topic or concept to discuss while walking—about the classroom, in the hallway, or outside. Partners summarize learning, clarify ideas, or ask questions. Partners report any remaining questions to the teacher after returning to desks.
