The Power of Hmm…: Bringing Life (Back) to Words in the Classroom
Glazer, Jeremy
Phi Delta Kappan, v99 n5 p56-60 Feb 2018
Structured academic discussions can focus too much on academic language to the detriment of actual discussion, disempowering students with the very tools intended to enhance student voice. The author suggests a new goal for such classroom talk: encouraging students to generate ideas and questions that engage their peers by focusing on the unexpected, provoking them to reconsider their assumptions about the world.
