Tips for Tightening up the 10/2 & Student Interactions
Fall is in the air, and schools across the country are in full swing! Teachers are busy building and deepening relationships with and among students, delivering content, and developing academic language skills with their students. One of the common strategies that teachers implement as they engage their students is the “turn and talk,” or 10/2. The concept of the 10/2 refers to providing an opportunity for students to process information, for about 2 minutes, after every about 10 minutes of instruction.

The SAILL (Summer Academy for Integrated Language Learning) at Esperanza Elementary offered a summer program for 180 students from 23 Elementary Schools entering Kindergarten through 5th grade. Due to the phenomenal success, OUSD’s Summer Academy was featured on ABC7!
