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)

http://learningspy.co.uk/2013/03/29/language-and-pedagogy/comment-page-1/#comment-1589

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

http://whatslanguagedoinghere.wordpress.com/2013/03/24/blog-4-genre-pedagogy/

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.
