#26: (catch up post) — he said what?

my 6 year old son: mom what is academic discourse?

me: hmm…who talked about this with you?

son: my teacher

me: wow. academic discourse is how students talk with and interact with what their learning. if your teacher said it, it may be when you’re talking with her about a topic and sharing those thoughts or figuring out things with your class, how your class is writing or talking with each other or making presentations and sharing what you think about the presentation and going back and forth about it.

son: i want to do that. can we do that at home?

me: sure (smiling inside)
