All of us growing up in traditional schools have undergone "an apprentice of observation" (Lortie, 1975) lasting many years. We are so inured to the patterns of classroom talk that we consider them "normal" and they have become invisible to us. Fortunately for us, there is research that serves to 'unpack' conventional classroom talk, and that focuses on the characteristics of dialogic talk that promotes student learning. In this article, I will highlight the key features of this research in order to help teachers examine their own practice.
