This classroom-based resource explores how both teachers and students learn the skills of discussion in content areas across the disciplines. Student reflections and teacher talk provide lively examples of how discussion plays a pivotal role in inquiry-based classrooms, developing students' basic skills of critical analysis and helping them become lifelong learners, able to confront and research any topic.
