Purposeful Language

   Last week, I concluded my second week of coaching for EDU 590 and 591.  All of the teachers demonstrated excellent teaching.  However, what impressed me the most, was the level of purposeful language I observed students using automatically.  Students were able to trace their thinking, give rationales for opinions, make connections, and collaborate to problem solve.  Students acquire this language as teachers model it - soooo - thank you all for doing such a fine job!
