▶️ 12 Editable Classroom Talk / Discussion Trackers (Data Collection)

This resource includes 12 different Accountable Talk / Classroom Talk Discussion Trackers (in different variations). Two of the Accountable Data Trackers are “student trackers” and titled “My Discussion Tracker” where students can keep track of their own participation during classroom talk. These trackers enable you to keep track of who’s making:

 ☆ Claims/Inferences

 ☆ Supporting their Ideas with Evidence

 ☆ Providing an Analysis or Explanation of their Claims/Inferences (Substance)

 ☆ Volunteering their Ideas

 ☆ Using Accountable Talk Stems

 ☆ Engaging in Respectful Communication with Peers

 ☆ Actively Listening

 ☆ Making Connections

 ☆ Building on Others’ Ideas

 ☆ Not Contributing to Discussion

 ☆ Not Using Accountable Talk Stems

 ☆ Does Not Support Ideas with Evidence

 ☆ Interrupting Others (as they speak)

 ☆ Engaged in Side Activities

 ☆ Lacking Substance

✅ Some trackers also provides you opportunities to jot down important key points that students have shared during discussion as well as some interventions needed to help them engage better in classroom talk.

✅ All this information can be tracked in these Classroom Talk / Accountable Talk Discussion Trackers. The data captured in these trackers can greatly help you provide the necessary interventions needed to support students in rigorous classroom talk. These trackers can also help you monitor their progress and have evidence of student learning. Your administrators will love you for this!

✅ Additionally, all 12 Discussion Trackers come in EDITABLE forms, so you can easily modify according to your needs and your students’ needs.

✅ The editable trackers do not contain the same fonts, borders, and clipart images as in the PDF version due to copyright purposes and requirements made by other contributing clipart artists. However, you may add your own borders and images to the editable version as well as change the fonts to your own style. The trackers themselves in the editable version are the same as the PDF version. The PDF version contains all the visually appealing fonts, clipart graphics, and borders.


▶️ 70 Rectangular Accountable Talk Stem Strips (5 strips for each of the 14 categories)

Accountable Talk Sentence Starter Stems are tools that students can use to respectfully get themselves into conversations and to draw other people into the conversation. There are 5 rectangular Accountable Talk Stem Strips for EACH category. Included are both COLORED and B&W Sentence Strips. These rectangular Accountable Talk Stem Strips provide students with access to five different option speech starters for each category. 

How You Can Use the Stem Strips

✅ One great idea is to provide students with these rectangular stems and have them write their names on the back. During discussion, every time a student introduces/expresses his or her ideas using the sentence starter on the Accountable Talk Rectangular Stem Strip, they hand that stem strip to you. At the end of class, you will be able to see and take note of how many times each student used the stem starter during discussion when presenting ideas. (All you have to do is look at their names in the back). It’s an AMAZING way to keep track of who’s using Accountable Talk during discussion and who isn’t, then provide intervention to ensure that students are using them. Students will also see that they are being held accountable for engaging in productive classroom talk using academic language!

✅ You can also display them on your bulletin boards so students can use them as a reference when engaging in productive, respectful talk!


▶️ 32 Accountable Talk Speech Bubbles

This resource includes 32 Accountable Talk Speech Bubbles (Rainbow and B&W) that can be posted anywhere in the classroom where students can reference them during discussions. These Speech Bubbles will help students actively engage in meaningful, respectful discussion with their peers. They contain Accountable Talk discussion starters to encourage academic, productive, and respectful conversations between students. These will provide them with varied opportunities to practice, apply, and build “new” language proficiency.


▶️ 12 Reading Strategy/Discussion Starter Bookmarks

Twelve attractive reading strategy bookmarks that students can use when they read or engage in classroom talk. Each bookmark includes sentence stems consistent with the following reading strategy categories:

 ☆ Determining Importance

 ☆ Making Inferences

 ☆ Questioning

 ☆ Evaluating

 ☆ Predicting 

 ☆ Summarizing

 ☆ Visualizing

 ☆ Text-to-Self Connections

These bookmarks are a great way to inspire your students to read, have in a school library, use as classroom prizes or give to students just because!

You may:

These Discussion Note-Catcher Worksheets can increase students’ interests and engagement during class discussions, debates, classroom talk, group talk, etc.! You can help maintain students’ interests and focus by holding them accountable for actively listening and recording important discussion information . . . to later share during discussion. As students both discuss and record their ideas and answers, and listen and record others’ ideas and answers, they can get different perspectives on a topic, organize their thinking, and feel more confident in contributing to their discussions.

These Discussion Note-Catcher Worksheets come in two variations:

✅ 21 Discussion Worksheets WITH Graphics

✅ 21 Discussion Worksheets WITHOUT Graphics

✅ BOTH Print and Digital


▶️ 1 Peer Evaluation Accountable Talk Discussion Rubric

This resource includes one Peer Evaluation Rubric in three variations – Same content. Editable versions are included, so you can modify in such a way that meets the needs of your students and instructional plans!

The Peer Evaluation Accountable Talk Discussion Rubric is meant for students to use and asses each other during Class Talk. Before beginning a discussion or debate, give each student a Peer Evaluation Rubric with another student’s name on it. (You can decide who will asses who, or you can just randomly write the names on Rubrics). Ask students to “secretly” observe and assess that student’s participation during the class discussion or debate. Students should not know who is assessing who so that evaluations of participation are fair. Throughout the discussion or debate, students will take meaningful notes of their classmates’ performances. At the end of the discussion or debate, give them 5 minutes to score the student whose name is on their Peer Evaluation Rubric. Finally, students can go up to the person they were observing and hand them the rubric. At the very end, the teacher collects the rubrics for review. This has worked so well for me! Students were always “on their toes.” Students found it so exciting to be observed by classmates and also observe others.

▶️ 2 Group Discussion Rubric/Reflection Sheets (EDITABLE)

This resource also includes two group discussion rubric/reflection sheets where you can either have students 1) evaluate the performance of the group during Accountable Talk/Group Discussions and/or 2) evaluate their own participation during group work/discussions.


▶️ 3 Accountable Talk Reflection Sheets (Print and Digital)

Students’ reflection of classroom talk helps them identify areas and skills that need both improvement and enrichment. These Accountable Talk Reflection Sheets encourage students to reflect about their experiences during collaborative talk/discourse and develop an appreciation for particular skills involved.

✅ This resource includes three Accountable Talk Reflection Sheets that come in two variations – with graphics and without graphics.

✅ These Reflection Sheets are student-friendly making it feasible for students of all levels to think and write about their overall participation in a collaborative learning setting.

✅ Reflection Sheets contain images, sentence starters, and questions to really help students think about their experiences during class discussions. They are especially student-friendly for SPED and ELL students!

✅ The worksheets contain amazing page borders, fonts, and clip arts – very visually appealing!
