Continuing Cooperative Development

A Discourse Framework for Individuals as Colleagues
Julian Edge


While we all have experience, we do not always learn from it as well as we might. Nor can we always bring about a good fit between our ideas and our actions. In Continuing Cooperative Development, a series of guided tasks helps the reader acquire specific skills of listening and responding that, in turn, help a speaker to express and articulate thoughts and plans that lie just beyond what they knew that they knew. This interactive framework is demonstrated in the book as part of a reflective teaching approach in response to everyday classroom problems, and also as part of a more formal, action-research approach to the formulation of local educational theory.

Continuing Cooperative Development draws on more than ten years of experience in using the framework worldwide and provides authentic examples to guide the reader. The teachers featured in the book have duties ranging from the instruction of young learners to the supervision of doctoral research. All are motivated educators, committed to extending their own understanding and developing their own style of being an aware professional.
