Taking Action Book Study: Chapter 7 (Cohort B)

Taking Action Chapter 7 promo graphicChapter 7, "Facilitate Meaningful Mathematical Discourse," argues that meaningful mathematical discourse in the classroom is not improvisational, but rather is something for which teachers can plan. In this month's book study, educators will discuss how to prepare for and facilitate meaningful mathematics discourse, and learn how to engage students so discourse supports the development of their mathematical identities and dispositions.

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.

Workshop Agenda:

  1. 15 minutes of reflection
  2. 30-40 minutes on the Analyzing Teaching and Learning (ATL)
  3. 15 minutes Focus on Equity
  4. 12-20 minutes- Taking Action- How am I taking what I learned back to my classroom?
