In this follow-up to his popular book, "Is This English?", Bob Fecho explores dialogic teaching, what it is and how teachers can move toward more reflective teaching practices. Fecho provides a framework to help teacher develop the necessary focuses, perceptions, and intellectual habits that will result in an ever-enriching dialogue with their practice.
Chapters like "Using the Difficulty" consider how an obstacle in the classroom can become a teachable moment, and "Wobble" asks teachers to be alert to when their beliefs are challenged by students and colleagues, and what can be learned in the balancing act. With anecdotes and scenarios from the author's own experience teaching adolescents and pre-service teachers, this engagting book will resonate with educators busy with today's overcrowded curriculums.
