Math Discourse - Class Blog
Share and learn from each other by posting comments, photos, and videos.
Describe the lesson you facilitated and how the discourse in your class helped the students perform better on a task. Did you use an oral number talk, a juicy problem, a performance task or...? What evidence did you see that made you feel like levels of discourse were moving forward? Refer to "Levels of Discourse" from Hufferd-Ackles, Fuson, and Sherin(2014)
Levels of Classroom Discourse
What "aha" moments did you have this session and what will you take back to your classroom? After reading "Levels of Classroom Discourse", what did you find to be an area of strength? What area do you want to further develop? What is your plan to get to the next level of classroom discourse?
Take a minute to reflect on the class. How did your mathematical knowledge increase? What "aha" moments did you have? What will you take back to your students to further their math discourse?
Please share the mathematical objective you were working on and the conjecture that your class came up with. Reflect on what was challenging about this process and how you addressed any misconceptions the students had. Share any thoughts about using conjectures in your classroom.
Please comment below on how the class today deepened your own mathematical background. Did you have any "aha" moments? How will you implement the use of conjectures in your classroom?
