Abstract

This study examines the academic conversations of fourth and fifth grade students through the use of open-ended reader response activities with correlation to a picture book read aloud by a classroom teacher. A higher emphasis has been placed on academic conversations in the classroom since the passing of the Common Core State Standards. Several standards focus around conversation and collaboration. Students are expected to engage in higher-level thinking as well as communicate through it. Through conversations, students are able to collaborate through authentic dialogue to construct meaning and deepen content understandings.
