streaming video and podcast download availableWebcast:  December 5, 2008

By going into the classrooms of three of the network members, we see first-hand how planned, purposeful, and playful talk promotes oral comprehension and vocabulary development in our youngest learners.

The following questions are intended to promote deep thinking and professional dialogue:
