Opening Minds: Using Language to Change Lives (2012) by Peter Johnston describes the power of a dialogic classroom where students are actively engaged in productive talk through the language of dynamic learning – the language that focuses on “the more you know, the smarter you get.” In this book study course, read closely and apply the language of dynamic learning to any content area, any curriculum, K-12 and any social setting.

Notice how students light up as their thinking and perceptions are valued, and recognize that what they do and have to say matters to the learning community of the classroom and beyond. Learn how to shape students’ learning, that opens their minds to possibility, builds self-esteem, and social consciousness. Discover how “Sometimes a single word changes everything.”(2)
