Amanda Roberts: also having trouble with the voice communications notification, although I am on my home computer.

MariaCreswell: IS there a way to have the speaker louder? I have my volume all the way up and it is still so quiet.

Carmen CGHS: Mary, I did that already, should I try it again?

Shafonda: how about may we please get a copy of this?

FrauSchaefer: using the conditional is helpful

Peggy Marconi: Yes, I will send the power point out after class, and Ulad will post it on the STELLAR website.

Sandy: listening carefully to what the student says and repeating it back with higher level vocab when possible.

MariaCreswell: key words in the students observation to repeat

Shafonda: nice Sandy!

FrauSchaefer: Using the conditional allows for the option of multiple perspectives and not ONE right answer

Shafonda: oh yeah, what FrauSchaefer said

Sandy: right!

MariaCreswell: If a student says, "the person in the picture is sick because there is medicine on the table." Using the words...sick, medicine and table so that I am using their observations in the paraphrase

MariaCreswell: yes

MariaCreswell: bedstand

Virginia Petitt: It sounds like...might...maybe...are useful phrases when paraphrasing

MariaCreswell: :)

deborahcreswell: I find that I often have to ask my students to repeat becaue I can't catch every detail with the first time I actively listen.

Virginia Petitt: yes!

MariaCreswell: You see a house, what else can you say about that house?

Sandy: I hear you saying that you see a house.

Bevoakridge: sorry, I am having a hard time hearing the speaker

deborahcreswell: If your making a margarita, please share.

Sandy: You think there is a father and two children, one is crying, possibly the mother left. You also said that they are in a small place.

MariaCreswell: You are saying that they are poor, so they don't have very much money. you said they are living in a small house or an apartment, you also said the mom left and they look sad. Maybe the parents got a divorce. What do you see that makes you say that?

Sandy: What do you see that makes you say that the mother left?

Shafonda: Thank you Student1, you are saying that this is a poor family, mom left, the dad is sad, and both girls are sad too.

Shafonda: What makes you say that this family is of a lower socioeconomic status?

Virginia Petitt: It sounds as though you are thinking that the family is poor and that the mom has left—what do you see that makes you say that?

GabeCGHS: You are seeing a poor family living in a tiny place. You are saying the mom may have left and one of the children might be crying.

Shafonda: way to go Green Sweater Sandy!

deborahcreswell: I hear you say that this is a poor family and you mentioned a daughter, a dad, and possibly a mom.  You see that they live in a small place.  The father's look caught your attention and you noticed a boy or girl crying.

MariaCreswell: I am adding vocabulary

MariaCreswell: I was trying to add vocabulary

Shafonda: manners manners manners

FrauSchaefer: You see a family who may not have a lot of money. The family members might include a father, daughter and another sibling who might be distraught perhaps because the mother may have left.

Virginia Petitt: Letting students know you are listening; teaching active listening skills

FrauSchaefer: Yes:)

Shafonda: important to let kids know we are listening to them,

KHawks: Validating students thoughts and perspectives.

FrauSchaefer: Really a great opportunity to build vocabulary within context

BethanyCreslane: I think it's an opportunity to connect students' ideas as well as expand vocabulary.

tmaher1: Paraphrasing is a wonderful tool to show that I'm listening and others are listening.  I'm can't wait until I do the actual kickoff meeting for VTS:)

deborahcreswell: I think it helps us as teachers be better listeners.

Sandy: This models active listening, vocabulary, and sentences. It also validates the thinking of the students.

GabeCGHS: Paraphrasing helps any students who weren't listening catch up and participate.

Kimkcreswell: Sometimes it teaches them to use more specific words.  Especially if I  get it wrong and they then search for more specific wording to show me what they really mean.

Shafonda: i also think it's great because no one is wrong-  this feels good to kids

Sandy: So true Shafonda

Actionbill: If you repeat what they say, they know it's important

tmaher1: lost your sound

MarieCreslane: Exactly Action. It also lets them know that you understand what they are saying.
