This text blends theory, research and practice to show educators the principal factors that are involved in classroom discussion. Each chapter describes one fundamental aspect of discussion - its nature and rationale, the topics and participants, the behaviours and language of discussion. In addition, actual transcripts illustrate and analyze various points about discussion, practical exercises suggest classroom activities and a bibliography gives ideas for further reading. Taking the view that successful discussion is within the reach of ordinary teachers and pupils in everyday classrooms at all levels of schooling, this book encourages educators to learn how to use discussion in their own practice.

Review:

"All teachers should benefit from this instructive, concise volume" "I would thoroughly recommend this book. It isjargon-free and a delight to read. The transcripts give it context and the exercises can be tried out with colleagues, friends, membersof the family, students - in fact, in any setting where a group of people are prepared to sit down face-to-face and address a question of commonconcern." - British Journal of Educational Psychology "In this elegantly written book, Jim Dillon integrates his own wide experience of classroom discussion with a particular model ofdemocratic educational practice ... I would thoroughly recommend thisbook. It is jargon-free and a delight to read. The transcripts give it context and the exercises can be tried out with colleagues, friends,members of the family, students - in fact, in any setting where agroup of people are prepared to sit down face-to-face and address a question of common concern." - British Journal of Educational Psychology (BPS Journal)
