A New Start

I’ve been trying to get started again on my Dialogue-Thinking-Learning Blog, and I’ve found two great sources to restart.

The first source in The Learning Spy (A Language Based Pedagogy)


And the Learning Spy led me to the second   (What’s Language Doing  Here):


Both of these sources do a great job of explaining and creating excitement about the role of oral language (dialogue/discourse) in learning across the content areas.  Basing their work on Halliday, they demonstrate how central yet neglected the use of  oral language pedagogy is.


Well worth reading.
