    As someone who has an interest in teaching and learning I find the idea of using clean language rather interesting and would love to lean more on how to use it in a teaching context.

    Hi Lewis, I have a recorded an interview with Julie McCracken, who is writing a book on using Clean Language with children, and will be posting it on this site very soon.

    Hi Lewis and Judy,

    I’ve just been listening to module 4. There’s a lot of interesting content great stuff Judy.

    … and then my ears began to burn…

    I love James’ tip about ‘making it into a pill’ and then notice the behavioural indicators that confirm they’ve taken it.

    “How do you know?” is such a useful question to ask children when they are devising success criteria or reflecting on the success of their finished work – because it causes them to stop, think and articulate specific and tangible outcomes for their work. This is very different from when I give them the specific and tangible outcomes (How do I know?!) because they are able to complete and/or feedback on their work with greater independence, more detail and relevance.

    I also use it when evaluating the effectiveness of Clean interventions in the classroom.

    I hope this gives you some food for thought Lewis.

    Happy to chat if you’d like to know more 🙂

    Just the person! Thanks for your comments Julie.

    Since I’ve been using Clean Language, simply parrot phrasing in conversations with everyone and framing things inside of their frames rather than mine seems to be increasing rapport and making me more likeable. It’s bizarre how our minds work that way.
