Product description

Conversation is more than the exchange of words. For young children and their teachers, it is a natural learning tool that serves to deepen children's knowledge. Knowing when to listen and how to respond will help you strengthen children's social, cognitive, and language skills. Are You Listening? is about creating a culture of conversation to help young children learn. These child-centered teaching methods will help you make conversation a part of your classroom's daily routine and engage children in actively building their understandings of the world around them.

Lisa's book has influenced the way that I interact with children. It has given me tips from setting up environments to listening to the child with special needs. Lisa's clear accessible langauge means this book is easily explored with all staff members of the education team. The question is "are you really listening to childen's voice?" A great resource for staff team training, student teachers and for parents too.
