    Her most recent book, which contains a more extensive discussion of teacher-student interactions that contribute to building students' intelligent habits of mind, is Teaching for Thinking Today: Theory, Strategies, and Activities for the K-8 Classroom (Teachers College Press, ).   The class activity is happening alongside the chat discussion. The Teach-Okay is a great strategy and can apply to all kinds of classrooms. This is a great teach-reteach method that helps to identify in-the-moment misconceptions and provides students the opportunity to help each other in a very positive way.

    Discussion-based Teaching and Handling Controversial Topics in the Classroom Discussions help students apply abstract ideas and think critically about what they learn. In fact, studies show that discussions build students’ problem-solving skills more effectively than do lectures. Class discussion, as with other teaching techniques, depends on a clear rationale, appropriate preparation and planning, and smooth execution. A welcome source of assistance in exploring discussion as a way of teaching is this recent volume by Brookfield and : Elaine H. El-Khawas.

    Discussions can be an excellent strategy for enhancing student motivation, fostering intellectual agility, and encouraging democratic habits. They create opportunities for students to practice and sharpen a number of skills, including the ability to articulate and defend positions, consider different points of view, and enlist and evaluate. A definition: Teaching is the process of attending to people’s needs, experiences and feelings, and intervening so that they learn particular things, and go beyond the given.. Interventions commonly take the form of questioning, listening, giving information, explaining some phenomenon, demonstrating a skill or process, testing understanding and capacity, and facilitating learning activities.
