  • Thank-you! What a great reminder of time-honored principles of teaching in a digitally re-mastered format. I am reading Courtney Cazden's book, 'Classroom Discourse', and she highlights to the need to really listen to our kids and seek to understand what they are revealing about their current understanding before we launch in to teahcer-mode! Your presentation brings that point neatly to the fore, and then you also point forward to the digital connections kids can use to both learn and share their learning. So thank-you. You've got me thinking!
