The Deliberative Classroom Research Project

Welcome to the webpage for our research project into how to promote classroom deliberation.

You can download the teacher handbook, teacher briefings and classroom resources here.

You can also download the lesson observation form, and watch a filmed lesson to practise on using the buttons on the right.

And there are some extracts from resources with associated transcripts, that will help you think about what might count as a successful discussion and what the pitfalls might be.

Finally, you can also download the full project report here.

That's it, but if you have any questions, feel free to email
