7 Benefits of using discussion Helps children to explore their ideas Improves communication, speaking and listening skills Encourages active participation Maximises contributions Less threatening Students learn from each other Increases self-awareness

8 Creating a climate for discussion Be open Create a relaxed and friendly, yet organised and purposeful atmosphere Make the classroom as conducive to discussion as possible Encourage open discussions Develop listening skills Create mixed groups, both ability and confidence Progress from talking partners, to fours or tables, and then whole class Dont always bail children out Encourage children to have ownership and responsibility Value what children have to say, even their mistakes Build trust and acceptance

9 Establishing the ground rules Get the group to establish the ground rules Suggested ground rules could be Dont interrupt anybody Listen to each other Be responsible for what you do Respect each others opinions Make sure everyone contributes No snide remarks Stick to the rules

10 Active listening An active listener should Sit quietly and look at the speaker Relax, and make any non-verbal responses that come naturally, e.g. nodding and smiling Concentrate on listening and suspend all judgements and questions Make verbal responses that only reflect or paraphrase the main points discussed

11 CPD video Watch the CPD video ( 4-class ) 4-class Discuss the following questions How had the teachers created a climate for discussion? How did the teachers use talking partners and small groups? How did they engage children during whole class discussion? How did the children demonstrate that they were sticking to the ground rules? What good listening skills did the children exhibit? How did the teachers organise the children for paired, group and class discussions? Plan how you will use these ideas with your class
