Use your words: how teacher talk helps children learn
Use Your Words examines the ways early childhood teachers talk to children, pointing out commonly missed opportunities to support cognitive development, develop receptive and expressive language, and aid children in their primary developmental task of making sense of the world. From the author of Theories of Childhood, this humorous and thoughtful guide contains a wealth of classroom examples, as well as clear alternatives for transforming the language teachers use in the classroom.
