Research output: Book/ReportBook


Transform your classroom into an interactive environment where students are empowered to share ideas and explore the wonderful world of literature. "Lively Discussions!" not only emphasizes why classroom discussion is important, but also offers "how to" advice on implementing specific strategies.
The contributors present excellent examples of children participating in discussion activities that emphasize collaborating with others, constructing meaning, and using a variety of texts to arrive at new understandings. Through these activities that foster peer interactions, children develop discussion skills and the confidence to discover new ideas within a supportive environment.
