Quality Talk Public

Enhancing Critical-Analytic Thinking and Reasoning through Teacher-facilitated, Small-group Discussions

Quality Talk is a teacher-facilitated, small-group discussion approach that encourages students to use talk as a tool for thinking and inter-thinking. The discussion model is a multifaceted approach that aims to improve students’ high-level comprehension and critical-analytic thinking about, around, and with text and content through initial professional development, ongoing coaching, and comprehensive curricular materials. The approach has effectively increased students' fluency, basic and high-level comprehension, and oral and written argumentation in elementary language arts, high-school physics and chemistry, and elementary and university-level second-language learning in the United States, South Africa, Taiwan, and mainland China.
