It then examines a series of educational efforts in which the point was to promote habits that enabled students to listen more intelligently to various kinds of conversations, and to participate more knowingly in such conversations. It discusses basic practice, disciplines as ways of getting into conversations, and disciplines as ways of connecting conversations.
