Really? Think again...

One of the essential skills to have is articulating your thoughts and feelings. It is about being able to bring your thinking to life and share it with others.

Many students struggle with articulating their thinking.

Often in the classroom, once content has been presented, educators assume that the concepts have landed. Indeed, students may even have followed the information, but they are at a loss when asked to explain the concepts in depth.

Students find it difficult because being articulate relies on more than just being able to speak.

It requires the brain first to make the right connections and then get your point across in a way that captures the true meaning of what you are trying to say.

When students can articulate their thinking:

✅the lessons are effective

✅students can fully participate in class discussions

✅students achieve a deeper level of learning

✅the learning experience of everyone in the classroom improves

Tune in to episode #5 on The Thinking Effect podcast to learn how to facilitate effective lessons and achieve deeper learning in your classroom.

In this podcast, we discuss the difference between receptive and expressive language and ways to ensure students acquire the vocabulary and concepts to articulate their ideas.

New vocabulary counts, but more importantly, students can be guided to explore the relationships between the ideas. Richer discussion and more meaningful learning occur when students communicate their knowledge through conversation, writing or other means of expression.
