At South Milford Community Primary School in North Yorkshire, Year 6 teacher Lesley Dennon encourages talking in class by using a technique called dialogic talk. The technique teaches pupils that all opinions are valid, and demonstrates the importance of pupil-to-pupil dialogue in personalised learn More…ing. In this programme, Lesley encourages her class to suggest plot developments and alternative endings during a discussion of the early twentieth century poem, The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes. A new teacher then works with dialogic learning for the first time.
