Building confidence and inclusive learning environments
Great discussions are one outcome of a classroom culture where students’ thoughts are welcome and where students are regularly expected to speak, listen and respond to one another.
But we understand we have students who are shy, hesitant to speak, or fearful about sharing their thoughts.
Talk Moves invites these students to stay involved, and to express themselves in unthreatening ways. Gradually, they’ll build up the confidence to confidently verbally contributing to classroom discussions.
What are our Talk Moves?
Talk Moves are an agreed set of sign language which we utilise across our entire school, from classrooms, to the yard, to staff meetings.
We communicate using talk moves; every day in every way.
Talk Moves are a practical application of our school values in action; Respect, Responsibility and Resilience
