Discourse in the Culture of Thinking Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How do conversation, language, and discussion in a Culture of Thinking classroom differ from that of a traditional classroom?  How do we understand effective discourse patterns, versus ineffective ones, so that we as teachers can better foster powerful learning communities? This mini course will focus on current research conducted by the Cultures of Thinking research team at Project Zero in the area of discourse.  Drawing on current work in field, Ron Ritchhart
will share practices that can help teachers at all year levels and across subject areas create a culture of thinking that empowers students and fosters deep understanding.  We will look at how we as teachers can use routines that are designed to facilitate thinking while structuring the discourse of the classroom.
