Orchestrating Productive Mathematics Discussions FULL

Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

This session is based on the NCTM book Five Practices for Orchestrating Productive Mathematics Discussions, which outlines a framework for orchestrating mathematically productive discussions that are rooted in student thinking. The Five Practices framework identifies a set of instructional practices that help teachers achieve high-demand learning objectives by using student work as the launching point for discussions in which important mathematical ideas are brought to the surface, contradictions are exposed, and understandings are developed or consolidated. By giving teachers a road map of things that they can do in advance and during whole-class discussions, these practices have the potential to more effectively orchestrate discussions that are responsive to both students and the discipline.

This workshop will model the framework for you, while you first participate in "student-mode." You'll then have the opportunity to examine samples of student work to simulate the Selecting and Sequencing practices and explore sample problems from various domains, to support implementation in your classroom.
