Student Engagement in Mathematical Discourse: Let's Give Them Something to Talk About

60 Minutes

Tricia will be focusing on aspects of a middle-school-level lesson, but the strategies she will share can be applied at the elementary and high school levels as well. Teachers and administrators will enjoy the practical takeaways that can be applied in math classes with ease as well as the changes they will notice in student interactions during learning. In this edWebinar, attendees will:

  • Learn strategies to elicit quality mathematical conversations amongst students
  • Discover practical and easy-to-implement ideas for use in the classroom tomorrow
  • Discover new approaches to increase student interactions during learning

This edWebinar will be of interest to K–12 teachers and school and district leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
