Choice Words, Opening Minds, and Engaging Literate Minds

In Peter Johnston’s popular book, Choice Words, he demonstrates how a single word a teacher says (or doesn’t say) can have consequences for the literate lives of the children in your classroom. In his follow-up book Opening Minds, he broadens his focus to show how engaging children with more productive talk supports their intellectual, social, and emotional development.

Description

In Peter Johnston’s popular book, Choice Words, he demonstrates how a single word a teacher says (or doesn’t say) can have consequences for the literate lives of the children in your classroom. In his follow-up book Opening Minds, he broadens his focus to show how engaging children with more productive talk supports their intellectual, social, and emotional development. Then, ten years ago, Peter and six colleagues set out to create classroom environments that reflected the values Peter put forward in Choice Words and Opening Minds, and documented their journey in Engaging Literate Minds, which profiles classrooms and students that are thriving while also embracing the challenges they encountered along the way.

 

Use these three books together to transform your classroom into a place where children are socially, emotionally, and intellectually healthy—guiding them to develop the skills to achieve district benchmarks while also developing their humanity.
