Online Book Study: (Google Classroom) What We Say and How We Say It Matters by Mike Anderson
Description from the ASCD book cover: "We all want our students to feel safe, collaborate well with others, feel ownership for their learning, and be joyfully engaged in their work. Nevertheless, many teachers end up using language patterns that undermine these goals.What teachers say to students-when they praise or discipline, give directions or ask questions, and introduce concepts or share stories-affects student learning and behavior. A slight change in intonation can also dramatically change how language feels for students. In What We Say and How We Say It Matter, Mike Anderson digs into the nuances of language in the classroom. This book's many examples will help teachers examine their language habits and intentionally improve their classroom practice so their language matches and supports their goals."This book study will last for six weeks starting March 30th and ending May 1th. Chapters will be assigned each week and reading responses will be due each Friday.The eBook is available for free on OCM BOCES - School Library System's Website: http://www.ocmboces.org/sls
