Gewertz, C. (2019, December 10). How Much Should Teachers Talk in the Classroom? Much Less, Some Say. Retreived January 15, 2020.

Are lessons dominated by teachers talking? Do students have a robust role in discussing what they’re learning? Or are they mostly answering procedural or factual questions? Are teachers consciously monitoring how much they talk? Should they be? Research and front-line teacher experience suggest they should be. And some teachers are using new tools like apps on their phones to help them reflect on their classroom talk habits.
