Bales for Schools

This is a primary-friendly version of the famous Bales Interaction Model, much used in the corporate world to improve the quality of talk in meetings. Our version can be used as an explicit tool to teach children how to ‘talk in a group’ to support collaborative learning and, ultimately, relationships and social skills. It also has positive repercussions for behaviour, wellbeing and (through those) SMSC.
