Read, Talk, and Write: Analysis Activities in Fiction and Nonfiction Texts

What role in comprehension does conversation play? Students participating in various types of literary conversations not only build collaboration skills but also critical analysis and interpretive skills. This supports students' efforts to deepen their understandings of various texts and strengthen their writing. This interactive session provides teachers the opportunity to participate in Laura Robb's "Six Types of Talk" lessons while using quality fiction and nonfiction texts. The lessons can be replicated in any mid-level ELA classroom. This session is ideal for any mid-level teacher who wants to purposefully embed speaking and listening standards into reading and writing tasks.
