Lesson 26: Comparing Galileo and Feynman using Accountable Talk

Lesson 26: Comparing Galileo and Feynman using Accountable Talk

In this lesson, students explain the relationships between individuals in two texts by engaging in a Socratic seminar or fishbowl discussion about Galileo and Feynman’s father’s use of the process of scientific inquiry.  They build off of the accountable talk skills that they practiced in lesson 22 in this unit, and also reflect on the process of accountable talk in preparation for the extension task discussion at the end of the unit.
