Workshop 4. Classroom Dialogues

Barry Hoonan demonstrates how teachers can observe and facilitate group discussions from outside the group.Teacher as a Reflective Practitioner

Make a list of several important things you learned about yourself, about others, or about the world through conversation. Choose one or two items on the list and analyze how the conversation worked. What was the topic? Who participated? What caused your moment(s) of insight? What application(s) might these experiences have to the kinds of experiences with literature you offer students?
