Abstract

The Partnership for Literacy is a university-school collaboration that endeavors to increase student achievement by enabling teachers to identify and use more dialogic methods for discussion in English language arts classrooms. The partnership offers ongoing instructional and professional development, and it helps teachers to consider how their instruction affects student learning. Some classroom vignettes that illustrate how participating teachers in this partnership worked in collaboration with their colleagues and facilitators to change deeply ingrained classroom discourse patterns are provided.
