Topic A: Enhancing Classroom Talk to Improve Communication, Confidence & Achievement
Classroom talk leads to significant improvements in text comprehension, as well as gains in students’ inferential comprehension, critical thinking and reasoning. (Murphy, Wilkinson, Soter & Hennessey, 2009). However, teachers generally dominate conversations, talking as much as 70-80% of lesson time (Yair, 2000). So, the first steps to improving classroom talk are for teachers to talk less and for students to improve the quality of their contributions.  As such, this webinar will show the best ways to:

  1. Reduce teacher talk so that there is more opportunity for student dialogue
  2. Create the conditions in which exploratory talk can flourish face-to-face and through remote learning
  3. Identify strategies that will make dialogue more active, meaningful, challenging and collaborative
