Keynote Address: Teacher Talk: What We Say (and How We Say It) Influences Student Learning MB-S18229

Have you ever said to a student, "I love the way you're working so hard!"? How about, "Here are the three things I'll be looking for in this next piece of work."? Or perhaps you've said, "If you all work really hard for the next 30 minutes, we'll finish class with something fun!" You probably have—we all have. Even though these statements (among many others) are used with the best of intentions, they might actually lead students to disengage and learn less! In this session, you'll learn about several common language habits and patterns that many educators find themselves in and have a chance to explore better alternatives. You'll also learn about a process for changing language habits and gain an online bank of resources to help you continue to explore language that can help boost student learning. MB-S18229
