What are Think-Alouds?

Think-Alouds are the external expressions, through speech or writing, of one's internal reflections. Mentor teachers need to regularly model sharing their Think-Alouds with their mentees, and mentees need to be encouraged to give voice or put into writing their internal verbalizations. Through the use of Think-Alouds you enable the mentor and the mentee to understand and appreciate how a pre-service, a beginning, and an expert teacher make classroom decisions.

On the next post we will discuss the first of several internal  reflection formats: The EIAG journal.
