Substantive Conversation in the Classroom – Podcast Episode 130 | Classnotes Podcast 130
Classnotes Podcast (October 17, 2013) Most of us can remember a time when students were expected to be silent in the classroom. Noise was a sign of trouble or at least inattention. But as the field has learned about the importance of student engagement in effective teaching and learning, educators and researchers have explored new strategies.
IDRA education associates, Veronica Betancourt, M.A., and Paula Martin Johnson, M.A., describe how introducing substantive conversation techniques can develop a deeper understanding in the content and academic vocabulary while stretching student’s thinking and connecting with their interests, explorations and questions. They give examples of using substantive conversation in the math and science classrooms. Veronica and Paula are interviewed by Aurelio M. Montemayor, M.Ed., IDRA senior education associate.
