Thinking Together ProjectA dialogue-based approach to the development of children's thinking and learning.Spoken Language

Spoken language enables us to do much more than share information - it enables us to think together. But as teachers, do we always use it to best advantage? And do we give enough attention to enabling children to use language as a tool for learning and problem-solving?

On this website we explain how years of practical, classroom-based research in several countries and with learners of all ages has provided useful answers to these questions.

We also provide some downloadable material for researchers and teachers, with links to useful books, research projects and other websites.

Are some accents better than others? English language teacher and author Richard Cauldwell examines the prejudices surrounding various English accents and the effect they can have on one's sense of self-worth.
nicolaperry's insight:

Not only learners but teachers themselves sometimes think some accents are more acceptable than others. This article examines why this thinking should be challenged.

Nicola: Cartoons are great for building your own specific dialogues but can also be used by learners in class to make their own. A great alternative to role plays as they are less threatening and more fun!
