Choice Words


Choice Words shows how teachers accomplish this using their most powerful teaching tool: language. Throughout, Peter Johnston provides examples of apparently ordinary words, phrases, and uses of language that are pivotal in the orchestration of the classroom. This book demonstrates how the things we say (and don’t say) have a surprising consequences for what children learn and for who they become as literate people. Through language, children learn how to become strategic thinkers. Johnston also examines the complex learning that teachers produce in classrooms that is hard to name and thus in not recognized by tests, policy-makers, general public, and often by teachers themselves, yet is vitally important.
