> Five Practices
Productive mathematical discussions lead to students who can think, reason and engage effectively in quantitative problem solving, characteristics which are much needed but may not routinely emerge from our classrooms. So just how can teachers create such discussions?
The authors detail the five manageable practices—anticipating, monitoring, selecting, sequencing and connecting—which have the power to put teachers in control of discussions which are purposeful and effective. Productive discourse is not an accident. It requires planning: setting goals for instruction, selecting an appropriate task, asking good questions and holding students accountable. Learn how to promote mathematical conversations with your students through this very readable book, well illustrated with pertinent classroom examples.
Also includes a professional development guide.
