ISP welcomed back Mark Church, co-author of “Making Thinking Visible” to address parents.

Creating a culture where learning is relevant, connected, and driven by curiosity is central to the ISP strategic plan, ISP2020. The language we use, the questions we engage with and deeply understanding how learning happens matter greatly. This session focused on:

How our motives and vision for learning give shape to the kinds of language we use with children

Language patterns that typically dominate our interactions with children

Routines that develop productive language and interactions for meaningful learning with our children.
