Teacher Talk That Makes a Difference.
Garmston, Robert; Wellman, Bruce
Educational Leadership, v55 n7 p30-34 Apr 1998
Dialog leads to collective meaning-making and shared understanding by building a sense of connection and belonging. Skillful discussion displays rigorous critical thinking, mutual respect, weighing of options, and decision making that serves the group's visions, values, and goals. When school faculties develop these skills, they transform their conversation into meaningful communication that benefits student learning. (MLH)
