Talk for learning (Dialogic Teaching)

Talk provides the bridge between what we know and what is new.  
Children learn when they explain their thinking to others, clarifying their own understanding in the process. In our Growth Mindset classrooms, teachers and children listen carefully to each other and respond and challenge each other’s ideas.

Everyone’s opinion is valued and children feel safe to freely express their ideas, take risks and make mistakes.  Children do most of the talking!
