This remarkable book explores all aspects of oral language with innovative strategies that address the true nature of collaborative inquiry. The activities encourage students to "think out loud", considering not only what they are thinking, but also why they are thinking it as they explore the dynamics of speaking and listening. In this strategic guide, teachers will find practical methods to help students understand the subtle but significant aspects of our language, such as justification, implied meaning, opinion, persuasion, and argument. The easy-to-use activities all include a purpose, simple guidelines for implementation, ideas for extension, and recommendations for reflection.
