Long gone are the days when we might, as educators, expect – or desire – children to be silent in class. This chapter argues in favour of making space for pupil talk in order to enhance learning. The context for this chapter is the maths classroom, however, there is relevance for any educator – in any subject – seeking to encourage pupils to engage more deeply, and take a more critical approach to learning.
