Selected as an Outstanding Academic Title by Choice Magazine, January 2010 Classroom talk, by which children make sense of what their peers and teachers mean, is the most important educational tool for guiding the development of understanding and for jointly constructing knowledge. So what practical steps can teachers take to develop effective classroom interaction? Bringing together leading international researchers and drawing on the pioneering work of Douglas Barnes, this book considers ways of improving classroom talk. Chapters cover: - classroom communication and managing social relations; - talk in science classrooms; - using critical conversations in studying literature; - exploratory talk and thinking skills; - talking to learn and learning to talk in the mathematics classroom; - the 'emerging pedagogy' of the spoken word. With an accessible blend of theory, research and practice, the book will be a valuable resource for teachers, teacher-trainers, policy makers, researchers and students.

The essays and their authors are, as follows: (1) "'Do You Really Just Want Us to Talk about This Book?': A Closer Look at Book Clubs as an Instructional Tool" (Diane Lapp; James Flood; Wendy Ranck-Buhr; Janice Van Dyke; Sara Spacek); (2) "Eavesdropping on Second Graders' Peer Talk about African Trickster Tales" (Rachel L. McCormack); (3) "Exploring Cultural Diversity through Peer Talk" (Sandy Kaser and Kathy G. Short); (4) "Lessons Taught and Lessons Learned: How Cross-Aged Talk about Books Helped Struggling Adolescents Develop Their Own Literacy" (Fenice B. Boyd and Lee Galda): (5) "Learning Is Noisy: The Myth of Silence in the Reading-Writing Classroom" (Wendy C. Kasten); (6) "Inventing Conversations in Second-Language Classrooms: What Students Say and How They Say It" (Kathryn F. Whitmore); (7) "Conflict during Classroom Discussions Can Be a Good Thing" (Janice F. Almasi and Linda B. Gambrell); (8) "Exploring the Complexities of Peer-Led Literature Discussions: The Influence of Gender" (Karen S. Evans); (9) "Encouraging Quality Peer Talk with Diverse Students in Mainstream Classrooms: Learning from and with Teachers" (Taffy E. Raphael; Cynthia H. Brock; Susan M. Wallace); and (10) "Watching Teachers Watch Children Talk about Books" (Jeanne R. Paratore; Sheila Garnick; Trinidad Lewis).
