Talk about what you want. Ask if you’d like something shared.

Brief school update: I have poured over my lesson plans and built in literally an extra hour of talking time for my students a day. Using Think Pair Share and Turn and Talk procedures (which we already do, but we’re doing more), so this won’t freak out admin. My rationale is that English discourse is essential for ELLs.

Still not ideal, but it’s something.
