Thoughtful use of language is an often-overlooked component of the teacher's repertoire. However, the words, phrases, tone, and pace used daily in the classroom have the power to help students develop self-control, build their sense of belonging, and gain skills and knowledge. In this warm and thought-provoking guide, Paula Denton offers practical tips, real-life anecdotes, and concrete examples, including specific suggestions about language to adopt and language to avoid. Topics include: using language to help children envision success;open-ended questions that stretch children's thinking;listening and using silence skillfully;the 3 Rs of teaching language: reinforcing, reminding, and redirecting;saying what you mean and meaning what you saygiving brief, concrete instructionsoffering meaningful, specific encouragement
"The Power of Our Words" advocates a sensible approach to teacher language that is backed by research and prove through decades of successful practice in elementary classrooms nationwide. It offers ideas beginners can try immediately and a wealth of guidance and support for those already engaged in the process of rethinking their practice.
