              Promoting Academic Talk in Schools brings together a rich array of recent research to explore how academic talk helps to transform student experience across a variety of learning environments. Drawing on conceptual frameworks and evidence-based strategies, each chapter analyses t...he implications for practice in both formal and informal classroom settings. The book covers topics from collaborative and productive talk, to increasing student participation and parent-student talk outside of the classroom. With contributions from academics in Australia, the UK, USA and Spain, it provides a comprehensive Western perspective of academic talk in schools. Promoting Academic Talk in Schools offers both theoretical perspectives and practical implications, making it an ideal resource for both researchers and postgraduate students in this burgeoning field.

              Enhancing Classroom-based Talk provides an overview of the major research and theoretical perspectives that underpin the development of classroom-based talk. It outlines specific dialogic strategies and elaborates on the key role that teachers play in promoting interactions, chal...lenging thinking and scaffolding the learning of students. While it is important to know how different dialogic approaches can enhance students interactions and learning and the effects they have on students social, emotional and cognitive development, it is also important to understand how students interactions promote understanding and learning during small group discussions. Throughout the book, teachers will be shown how to embed different dialogic approaches in their classrooms to promote discourse, with chapters covering: Interest in classroom-based talk The teacher s role in promoting dialogue in the classroom Dialogic approaches to teaching Strategies to promote students interactions, thinking and learning Help seeking and help giving behaviours Creating environments that promote classroom-based talk Enhancing Classroom-based Talk will be a valuable asset to all those concerned with promoting classroom-based talk, as well as postgraduate students, teachers and academics who are regularly called upon to assist in developing classroom interventions that provide for the academic and social needs of students.

              Students often think of science as disconnected pieces of information rather than a narrative that challenges their thinking, requires them to develop evidence-based explanations for the phenomena under investigation, and communicate their ideas in discipline-specific language as... to why certain solutions to a problem work. The author provides teachers in primary and junior secondary school with different evidence-based strategies they can use to teach inquiry science in their classrooms. The research and theoretical perspectives that underpin the strategies are discussed as are examples of how different ones areimplemented in science classrooms to affect student engagement and learning. Key Features: Presents processes involved in teaching inquiry-based science Discusses importance of multi-modal representations in teaching inquiry based-science Covers ways to develop scientifically literacy Uses the Structure of Observed learning Outcomes (SOLO) Taxonomy to assess student reasoning, problem-solving and learning Presents ways to promote scientific discourse, including teacher-student interactions, student-student interactions, and meta-cognitive thinking

              Collaborative Learning: Developments in Research & Practice

              Collaborative learning is well recognised as a pedagogical practice that promotes socialisation and learning among students from kindergarten to the university level and beyond. Children, adolescents, and adults learn from each other in a vast array of formal and informal setting...s in schools and the wider community. This book brings together a diverse range of international scholars to profile new pedagogical developments in collaborative learning and to highlight how these practices have been implemented. The term collaborative learning is used very broadly in this volume and includes cooperative learning, peer learning, and peer collaboration. The proponents of these practices argue that by working together, students have many opportunities to learn and develop a greater understanding of others with diverse social, personal, and academic competencies. The emphasis in this volume is on chapters that have a strong evidence-base for the work that is presented. This includes chapters that present empirical studies, research reviews, case studies and theoretical reviews because there is much to be gained by sharing and learning about what happens and how different pedagogical practices have been implemented. These chapters include pedagogical practices in mathematics learning, classroom-based talk, literacy, learning processes, group work, pre-service teacher education, teacher professional development, web-based technologies, and affective education and development. This book will have appeal to pre-service and experienced teachers who are interested in how different collaborative pedagogies can be embedded in different curricula to promote student engagement with learning. It will also be valuable as a reference text in post-graduate courses that focus on research training in education.

              This book brings together a diverse range of researchers to profile new pedagogical developments in teaching and learning. This includes pedagogies in the fields of mathematics and science education, literacy, computer supported learning, and specialist fields such as special edu...cation, indigenous education, music education and the learning processes and relationships that are evident in many of these fields. The emphasis in this book is on chapters that have a strong evidence-base for the work that is presented. While some will argue that the different fields have their own specific pedagogies, often referred to as pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) (Schulman, 1986), research also indicates that there are many pedagogies that are applicable across different disciplines. Teachers and educators need to be cognisant of how different pedagogies can be applied or used creatively in their own disciplines to promote understanding and learning
