Written Conversation

A written conversation is a note writing tool for engaging and discussing ideas.Students can all “talk” at once and it’s still quiet in the room. Unlike out loud discussions that vanish into thin air – letters leave artefacts that can be used or assessed later.Live – here and now conversations are when students pass notes in class
The take away version is when the reader has to wait and retrieve the note from a mailbox or email etc to read it. The teacher may like to join in the conversation as well. Students might typically have a regular dialogue journal buddy and write to each other once a week.The text is the key to success of the activity. You need something short, complex and central to the subject field.
