Fabulous Discussion & Sentence Starters

There are amazing blogs and websites that deal with sentence frames, discussion starters, and academic language talk.
One of the best blogs in which a teacher walks one through the process of establishing accountable talk or academic language talk rules in class is Life in 4B. It is detailed with commentary and pictures. They have a lovely section on using peer conferences for students to be able to edit one another's writing. Scroll down to see the wonderful ideas about how to scaffold academic language or Socratic Seminar conversation in a classroom. The posters for the different types of discussion starters are wonderful and something to emulate.
