Accountable Talk | Institute for Learning

Since 1995 the Institute for Learning has been dedicated to improving the education and achievement of all students, especially those traditionally underserved. Our research-based curriculum, tools and professional development build the capacity of teachers, administrators, and systems to provide students with high quality instruction and learning opportunities. We put research on effort-based learning to work for students and educators.


Talking in the classroom is one of the best ways to promote student responsibility for their own learning. Productive classroom talk is the basis of good thinking; indeed it is thinking made visible; and of good writing. This page offers a guide to implementing a talking classroom, one where teachers talk less and students talk more.
