Student engagement in meaningful mathematical discourse is critical to student gains, yet teachers still seem to be doing most of the talking. In this edWebinar, Tricia Chmill, Manager of Curriculum and Content at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, shares ways to get students doing the talking. She takes “typical” aspects found in mathematical lessons and transforms them into purposeful tasks that promote mathematical discourse and student ownership of learning.

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

  • 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 recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-12 teachers and school and district leaders.
