Authentic and Inclusive Math Talk

Being able to discuss math concepts and share their understanding is important learning for students. We will share strategies for developing a collaborative and dynamic math talk community in your classroom by examining how best to create a culture of safety and risk taking, and to embed structures such as Number Talks, Number Strings, Talking Points and other oral math procedures into your daily routine. Participants will acquire a number of tools to use immediately in their classrooms and gain an understanding of the importance of intentionally creating opportunities for authentic talk between students.
