Talking with Friends will help you conduct a collaborative, thought provoking seminar to increase speaking and listening skills.
Seminar is when students talk with each other while discussing their individual thoughts. They can talk about a text or a picture. Seminar helps children develop the critical thinking skills necessary for everyday life.
Your school does not have to buy into the program; you can just add these lessons into your current curriculum. It's a great way for students to talk about a particular topic in order to gain a better understanding about the topic they are studying.
