Description

Why can't students do higher order thinking? Why do educators have endless staff meetings with few results? How can parents and teachers communicate better? This book demonstrates how the Focused Conversation method, widely used in organisations and businesses, can effectively be used in K-12 educational setting. Each section deals with interactions among students, staff, and parents and elaborates with 100 sample conversations designed to make learning more meaningful, prevent and solve problems, and make communications in meetings more effective. Appendices showcase integrated curriculum examples where conversations have been used in unique combinations and list sample questions for each level of the conversation method. A bibliography and index are also included.
