Talk and interaction in the dialogic classroom

This book is the result of a year-long research project, ‘Researching dialogic pedagogies for literacy learning across the primary years’. The project was funded by the Primary English Teaching Association Australia (PETAA) through their initiative, the PETAA Research Grant (PRG), first awarded to the authors in 2015/16.

The book aims to provide core understandings about classroom dialogue that allow educators to say definitive things about the role of talk and interaction for meaning making in classroom lessons. In winter member packs. More details and sales for non-members.

‘My love affair with PETAA books began when I was a secondary school teacher and that was over 20 years ago. Since then, I've been a primary teacher and a teacher educator. Regardless of my role, PETAA books have been exceptionally useful.’ Robyn Henderson (Associate Professor), School of Teacher Education and Early Childhood, University of Southern Queensland. ​
