Principal's Message

Conversations are Powerful Teachers

Conversations are powerful teachers. They shape our identities, thoughts, beliefs and emotions. They engage, motivate, and challenge. They help us build ideas, solve problems, and communicate our thoughts. They teach us how other people see and do life; conversations strengthen our comprehension of new ideas and can lead us to processing and pondering ideas for hours, days, and even years. We are the products of thousands of conversations!
So, what exactly are academic conversations?
Academic conversations are sustained and purposeful conversations about school topics. (Zwiers & Crawford, 2011). These topics vary widely, ranging from themes in Charlotte’s Web to isolation in Japan, from the role of media in constructing gender norms to the debate on the use of stem cells. Regardless of topic or content area, there are five core conversation skills that we are focusing on as part of our literacy work: elaborate and clarify; support ideas with examples; build on and/or challenge a partner’s ideas; paraphrase; and synthesize conversation points. These skills work together to help students focus on and explore important questions, ideas, or topics. These skills empower students to communicate well in a variety of situations such as: class discussions, small groups, social gatherings, and family interactions.
As a staff, we have been working on designing tasks that promote academic conversations. We want our students to do more than just talk! We want our students to engage in dialogue and discourse about meaningful topics. Recently, we received a grant to purchase a number of new books for our Learning Commons. We have been extremely thoughtful about the types of books we have selected; ones that honour diversity and represent the full range of uniqueness that our students provide! These books will center some of our academic conversations. Stay tuned for more information about a list of books that will soon hit the shelves in our Learning Commons! This is very exciting for our school!
It is inspirational watching your children grow in their communication skills. We have been very proud of their risk-taking and willingness to try new things.
Sincerely, Andrea
