Classroom conversation plays an important role in the development of children's language and reasoning skills. However, studies show that classroom talk relies too much on directives and close-ended questions. Conversation Compass provides many tools, including converstaion maps and tracking forms, activities and reflection questions, and more.

Learn to adapt your classroom conversations to meet the diverse needs of all the children you teach and set them up for academic success.
