This book describes the importance of classroom talk and how talk binds learning together. It illustrates how explicit teaching is not the same as direct, prescriptive instruction, and through classroom examples, balances the theoretical and practical aspects of 'classroom talk' to show how the role of dialogic pedagogies enable 'on task' teaching and learning.
