    What is this strategy about?
    You will already use Turn and Talk in your classroom without even knowing it, but using it properly can ensure that it is efficient, accountable and rigorous.

    What is Turn and Talk?
    Turn and Talking is a structured discussion that prompts students to turn to a specific partner to discuss an idea or question to deepen understanding. This strategy permits all students to participate in the discussion so that everyone has a chance to share their thinking.

    How do I put this into place in my classroom?
    Do this whenever you would have an instance of asking pupils to discuss something before feeding back. Over the 6 weeks, an effective routine should be established.
