Taking Action Book Study: Chapter 5 (Cohort A)

Taking Action Chapter 5 promo graphicChapter 5, "Pose Purposeful Questions," looks at how to phrase questions to go beyond gathering information and instead probe students' thinking and require explanation and justification. In this chapter, educators will discuss the difference between assessing questions, advancing questions, and anticipating questions, and practice applying each in their classrooms.

The objectives of the Taking Action book study are:

  • To increase teacher's understanding of the key features of the eight effective mathematics teaching practices
  • To examine how the teaching practices interact as a framework for equitable mathematics instruction
  • To recognize how the teaching practices support deeper learning of mathematics
  • To provide a variety of actives, strategies, and resources to assist teachers in applying the ideas discussed in the book to their own practices.

  1. 15 minutes of reflection
  2. 30-40 minutes on the Analyzing Teaching and Learning (ATL)
