This is a classic edition of Prue Goodwin’s acclaimed collection of articles by leading educationalists on the place of talk in the primary curriculum, which now includes a preface from Lyn Dawes. A talking classroom is both a crucial part of every subject area and a subject in its own right. For all primary teachers committed to deepening their understanding of the pivotal role talk plays in learning, this book focuses attention on the importance of fully enabling pupils’ learning potential.

Articles, grouped according to a flexible framework, explore:

  • the importance of talk in learning
  • discursive and interactive classrooms
  • talking and learning in the early years
  • talk across the curriculum
  • the importance of storytelling and drama.

The new introduction reflects on key research developments since the book was first published.

The Articulate Classroom is an engaging introduction to the field which is still very relevant to today’s readers. It will remain an indispensable guide for teachers looking to extend their skills, and a unique chance for education researchers to gain an overview from experts in the field.
