Product Description

Using classroom discussions to teach good habits of thinking 

Classroom discussion has a major effect on student learning. In fact, dialogue is one of the best vehicles for learning how to think, make moral decisions, and understand another person’s point of view. Research also indicates that most teachers talk too much in the classroom and don’t wait long enough for students to respond. How do we improve the quality of classroom discussion? Challenging Learning Through Dialogue transforms the most up-to-date research into practical strategies that work. Readers will learn

  • -How to build in more “wait-time” for better quality thinking and questioning from students
  • -How to use dialogue to teach reasoning, collaboration, and good habits of thinking
  • -The three types of dialogue and how to teach the most effective version: exploratory talk
  • -Dozens of practical strategies for exploratory dialogue
  • -Global examples of fun ways to teach dialogue
  • -An innovative new instructional strategy called Classroom Mysteries

 

Written by an internationally known team of educational innovators, this book is for all educators who aim to use effective classroom dialogue to engage students in learning.
