ED 6710 - Structuring Classroom Dialogue

This course is designed to assist teachers in the development of their ability to conduct dialogue in a classroom. Each student prepares lessons, presents them to a small group of students, and is videotaped and critiqued with each presentation. Some ethnographic research methods are presented and applied during this course, specifically the use of fieldnotes, journals, and transcription as well as observation and self-observation methods. In addition, the course is designed to instruct the student about the ancient historical roots of dialogue, its transmission throughout the history of the western world, and the role that dialogue has played and continues to play in human interaction and learning. Students must be teaching or have access to a classroom for necessary application of course content.

Credits: 3 hrs.

Notes: Open to Graduate Students Only.
