Keep in mind, we could have mileage in one of these areas but it is important to ask yourself is it heightening the level of complexity that the children are able to achieve. We have to be prepare to shift our pedagogical beliefs in order to make the necessary shift in our student's level of achievement.
- Tuning into and picking up the message and meaning expressed by the child
- Offering more-structurally, word choices, contexts
- NOT posing questions or "wringing" more out of the child
- Co-constructing and co-contributing- focused on the child and growing their language and understanding
