Conversing with Students Increases Teacher’s Productivity- a Research Study
Research developed by Tennessee State University shows that conversations and daily interaction among teachers and children are crucial for their development. Observing children and interpreting their thinking processes is a significant factor in intentionally planning a curriculum that emerges from children’s thinking, assists them in making connections, and extends their learning.
The role of today’s teacher is not only to help the students learn the curricula but also to create and develop cognitive and social competencies. The teacher should also develop skills and strategies which ensure engaging classroom time with the students. Productive conversations with children impact the learning process of teachers as well.
