Conversations for Learning

In this video resource, we follow a classroom inquiry as students investigate a range of global issues that are of interest to them. By using multiple sources of information, they seek to understand diverse perspectives and what actions might be appropriate to tackle problems. They dig deep for meaning, question their sources and try to come to a clear understanding through conversations with their peers. Students come to the dialogue ready to participate in an intellectual exchange, willing to listen with an open mind and possibly create newer, stronger knowledge.
