This session will help participants design EBA lessons for their own classes that are designed to engage students through student academic discourse as the center of the learning. This takes the same content teachers want to deliver but reframes the role of the teacher and poses questions in a way that will prompt students’ critical thinking and collaborative work.This workshop will show how EBA activities transfer cognitive demand from teacher to student and increase academic discourse. Participants will leave with three EBA activities to help students speak, write, and read critically in a student-centered classroom.
