Abstract

This chapter looks at the role of talk in the primary mathematics classroom, with a particular focus on the 'Thinking Together' approach developed by Neil Mercer and colleagues. It describes how children need to be explicitly taught how to 'do' exploratory group talk and discusses data from a research project the author was involved in into this topic and discusses the implications for teaching and learning.
