The Power of Our Words: Teacher Language That Helps Children Learn (New)
Paula Denton
Language is a powerful teaching tool; it can shape thoughts, feelings, and experiences. The words you choose to use, the pacing, and your tone of voice can all change the message you are sending. This book addresses how to use appropriate "teacher language" to bring out the best in children. Practical guidelines and concrete examples are given, as well as examples of language to avoid. Ideas on giving brief instructions, using open-ended questions, listening, and offering meaningful encouragement are just some of the topics covered. When used effectively, language can positively influence achievement and classroom management. (176 pages)
