Using Dialogue to Develop a Language of Learning
Date: Monday, December 11, 2017
Duration: 60 minutes
Presented by James Nottingham and Martin Renton
Classroom discussion is one of the best vehicles for learning how to think, make moral decisions, and understand another person’s point of view. Research indicates that most teachers talk too much in the classroom and don’t wait long enough for students to respond. In this webinar James Nottingham and Martin Renton translate the most up-to-date research into practical strategies that improve student learning.
You 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
