With this in mind, I am embarking on my next reading quest… over the weeks ahead, I hope to digest the following three documents, and report back via this blog:
1. Talk About Listening
Another one of the LNS Monograph series, this one, I hope, will round out my understanding of “Grand Conversations” (GC), which I recently read.
2. Peel's Transformational Practice
A document on accountable talk (unfortunately this one is not accessible online, I don’t think, unless you are a Peel employee, then it is under the TP chiclet – if you’re on “the inside”, you’ll know what that means, lol!!!)
3. Conference Handout about Grand Conversations
Found this one online. Or maybe it was our IT resource guy who found it? Either way, it looks like a nice summary and possibly application of what I found before, in the LNS monograph on GC.
But first, I promised myself I’d read about integrating technology, so you’ll have to wait for the Oral Language folks… or read ‘em yourself using the links above!
