Teacher Talk explores the way teachers talk to children and exposes the underlying "silent messages" that accompany their spoken words. It details teacher's talk — the comments, questions, commands, and suggestions that teachers direct at students every day and reveals ways to strengthen typical language patterns. By selecting words and phrases intentionally, you can empower your students and enhance their learning. These verbal skill strategies can be used to dramatically increase achievement and manage behavior. This book will increase your communication skills and add fun and adventure to the important challenge of teaching.
