Book Description

First published in 1995, Communication and Learning Revisited focuses on the importance and benefits of group dialogue in cooperative learning.

The book explores the use of group dialogue among students across a variety of disciplines and demonstrates how collaboration helps them to understand different concepts. It outlines cognitive and social strategies that can enhance collaboration and presents collaborative talk’s role in learning, setting forth a theoretical framework that draws upon the ideas of writers such as Vygotsky and Bakhtin.

Communication and Learning Revisited will appeal to those with an interest in teaching methods, classroom dialogue, and cooperative learning.
