Promoting effective classroom dialogue - SESSION 2
This course looks at how to create a more dialogic classroom through promoting quality classroom talk. It will help NQTs to develop talk for learning and the systematic building of pupil’s capacities to narrate, explain, question, respond, evaluate, discuss and justify.

NQTs will: • Develop their own classroom rules for dialogic talk • Understand what makes quality learning talk in group discussion • Have a better understanding how/when and if they should intervene in group talk • See more planning opportunities for group discussion in maths, science and English lessons
