Your child is asking Why? and seeking meaning. Listening and responding encourages refl ective thought. Now that our children are spending more and more time in virtual reality, making connections with their minds is becoming even more important. Thinking requires an individual to formulate an idea into a conceptual thought that can be recalled and analyzed. A parent can help their child think clearly by actively participating in their learning. Listening to your child means your child will listen as well. The child is seeking meaning.

Dialogic Readers: Children talking and thinking together about visual texts celebrates the sophisticated and dynamic discussions that primary-aged children can have as they talk together to make meaning from a variety of texts, and it highlights the potential for talk between readers as a tool for critical and creative thinking. It proposes a new dialogic theory of reading comprehension that incorporates multi-modal media and adds further weight to the argument that talk as a tool for learning should form a central part of primary classroom learning and teaching. The book explores: • the language of co-construction • children’s critical and creative responses to text • the dialogic transaction between text and readers • the use of language as a tool for creating a social cohesion between readers. This significant work is aimed at educational lecturers, researchers and students who want to explore an expanded notion of reading comprehension in the twenty-first century, realizing how opportunities for children thinking creatively together might transform the potential for learning in the classroom. It provides a framework for analyzing co-constructive talk with suggestions for promoting children’s critical and creative thinking.

Dialogue has long been used in primary classrooms to stimulate thinking, but it is not always easy to unite the creative thinking of good dialogue with the need for children to understand the core concepts behind knowledge-rich subjects. A sound understanding of key concepts is essential to progress through the national curriculum, and assessment of this understanding along with effective feedback is central to good practice. Dialogic Education builds upon decades of practical classroom research to offer a method of teaching that applies the power of dialogue to achieving conceptual mastery. Easy-to-follow template lesson plans and activity ideas are provided, each of which has been tried and tested in classrooms and is known to succeed. Providing a structure for engaging children and creating an environment in which dialogue can flourish, this book is separated into three parts: Establishing a classroom culture of learning; Core concepts across the curriculum; Wider dialogues: Educational adventures in the conversation of mankind. Written to support all those in the field of primary education, this book will be an essential resource for student, trainee and qualified primary teachers interested in the educational importance of dialogue.

"Hands Down, Speak Out is an innovative book that looks at how we can teach students how to talk and listen to one another, without all discourse running through the teacher. Kassia is a math coach and Christy is a literacy coach. Together, they show how to teach dialogue "micro-lessons" alongside content, both within and across math and literacy, so students become increasingly skilled and independent in conversations. Their hope is that students will have better, deeper discourse within the content areas, and also beyond the classroom"--

Dialogue And The Development Of Children S Thinking

This book draws on extensive research to provide a ground-breaking new account of the relationship between dialogue and children’s learning development. It closely relates the research findings to real-life classrooms, so that it is of practical value to teachers and students concerned that their children are offered the best possible learning opportunities. The authors provide a clear, accessible and well-illustrated case for the importance of dialogue in children's intellectual development and support this with a new and more educationally relevant version of socio-cultural theory, which explains the fascinating relationship between dialogues and learning. In educational terms, a sociocultural theory that relates social, cultural and historical processes, interpersonal communication and applied linguistics, is an ideal way of explaining how school experience helps children learn and develop. By using evidence of how the collective construction of knowledge is achieved and how engagement in dialogues shapes children's educational progress and intellectual development, the authors provide a text which is essential for educational researchers, postgraduate students of education and teachers, and is also of interest to many psychologists and applied linguists.

Want students to understand-really understand-and retain the math they're learning? Focus on building your classroom community first. In Thinking Together, veteran teachers Rozlynn Dance and Tessa Kaplan explore nine beliefs that lead to a powerful community of learners. When students are part of a classroom where they feel valued and included, they are more likely to take risks, ask questions, and grow exponentially as mathematicians. Rozlynn and Tessa tell us, "We must create a kind, caring, trusting community of learners who feel comfortable tackling the unknown, taking risks, and making mistakes." This book doesn't pretend teaching is simple-instead, it celebrates the potential in the everyday messiness of learning together. Each chapter includes: opportunities to reflect on your practice through an exploration of beliefs such as "Mistakes are great!" and "It's not just about the answer" practical guidance for building your classroom community through student-centered strategies and classroom examples "When Things Don't Seem to be Working" sections for troubleshooting common challenges and adapting to teaching that doesn't go as planned. An environment fine-tuned for learning creates conditions in which your students can thrive as mathematical thinkers. Thinking Together will help shape your beliefs about what it means to be a learning community and provide support for building those beliefs into your classroom.

This book advances the theoretical account that Barbara Rogoff presented in her highly acclaimed book, Apprenticeship in Thinking. Here, Rogoff collaborates with two master teachers from an innovative school in Salt Lake City, Utah, to examine how students, parents, and teachers learn by being engaged together in a community of learners. Building on observations by participants in this school, this book reveals how children and adults learn through participation in activities of mutual interest. The insights will speak to all those interested in how people learn collaboratively and how schools can improve.

This practical book is based on the influential Thinking Together approach - a special method for developing speaking, listening and thinking skills. It is based on classroom research carried out in schools by the Open University, which has now been integrated into the National Primary Strategy. Included are twelve lesson plans for whole class and small group work. These have been built around specific learning objectives for speaking and listening, with activities related to literacy, numeracy, science and citizenship. At the heart of the lesson plans is the ‘talk box’ - a collection of interesting objects which provide a focus for class discussion. The 'talk box' helps children learn to share information, articulate ideas, reason and solve problems together. In this way, teachers can promote the development of children's language and thinking skills throughout the whole of the Key Stage 1 curriculum.
