Adult led v. Child initiated


Recommended Posts

It's storytime. The children are interested and concentrating well (adult led).

Afterwards we talk about the story, some children recall parts of the story, some give their opinions and others link it to their wider learning. Would you class the discussion as being adult led or would you say that it is child initiated since the children are giving their own thoughts and opinions.

I'd appreciate any comments!

Yes, I agree that the adult initiated the activity and led the children through it - especially if questions are directed - but could you not say that the children are initiating their own answers - they could (and often do) take the conversation in a different, but related (though sometimes unrelated!), direction. :ph34r:

Thanks, Scarlettangel!
