					Overview of the Student Success 2011 Summer Program for Student Achievement in Literacy
The material provided in this package is for your use and adaptation. Facilitators may choose to work through a module before beginning the
board-specific application activities or intersperse sections of the modules throughout the board-specific portions of the agenda.

Our expectation is that all participants will have an opportunity to meet the following learning goals:
    Define accountable talk and understand how it
           o supports students’ deeper understanding of subject content
           o helps students to learn and reflect on their learning
           o helps students in communicating their knowledge and understanding
    Connect the use of accountable talk with the literacy needs of adolescents
    Use a variety of accountable talk strategies to meet the range of literacy needs of students
    Plan for explicit use of strategy instruction through the gradual release of responsibility

As with other summer program modules, it is expected that at least one half day of the session is spent on this learning.
