Science talk is important when helping young children make sense of science phenomena. The MI standards for language arts and science expect students to develop disciplinary oral language skills. In this session, K-2 teachers will learn about research and resources from the NSF-supported project, SOLID Start. We will share our research-based framework and related teaching practices that can be used to support students’ use of academically productive science talk. Teachers will learn how they can purposefully reflect on the quality of their teaching practices to support science talk in order to make plans for continued growth.
