SDAIE Method: Chalk Talk
Chalk Talk is a bridging strategy that engages students by encouraging collaborative brainstorming.
A prompt is displayed on a whiteboard or large sheet of paper. The class gathers around the paper so that all the students can see it. While the students remain in silence, they may take turns writing answers and/or ideas about the prompt on the board, and responding to each others' comments.
