Discussion is a place to talk about and share my ideas.
High quality discussion:
- takes place between peers in small and large groups
- is planned learning
- occurs frequently at key points during the learning sequence.
Discussion should be an integral part of learning to develop critical thinking, creativity, reasoning and resilience
Teachers can facilitate discussion by posing questions that provoke a response, reaction or deep thought. Throughout the discussion, they are a guide and prompt and should manage strategies that encourage equitable participation.
