In this presentation I elaborate on a conceptual model, an illustration, of how thoughts “move” in a classroom. In my teaching I attempt to invite students into conversation with practices, theories, each other, and me. The hope is that in these conversations students have the opportunity to find new ideas about teaching and learning. Within classrooms, though, what ideas get heard? Which do not? Which ideas move a conversation forward? Which ideas lead to new ideas? And, what is the teacher’s role with, through, and around these ideas?
