Making Waves: Towards a Pedagogy of Discourse
Kessler-Singh, Lorraine; Robertson, Leena Helavaara
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v58 n1 p35-45 2016
This article re-examines the classroom discourse context in early years settings and primary schools. It seeks to understand why such slow progress has been made in developing talk for learning in recent years. The article acknowledges that children are already expert language users by the time they start school and offers practitioners practical ways to enhance children's thinking and learning by developing their capabilities in talk.
