Adding Talk to the Equation
Designed for grades 1–8 math teachers and coaches, this self-study guide, now available as a paperback with extensive online classroom video, showcases elementary and middle school classrooms where teachers inspire even the most reluctant students to share their ideas. Through the stories of skilled teachers, Lucy offers play-by-play commentary as they get more comfortable with new talk moves and learn to tune in and respond to students’ math conversations. Although these discussions occur in math class, the strategies can be used to create a respectful, productive environment for any subject area.
This video-based resource examines the importance of creating a safe learning environment; the value of thinking, reasoning, and questioning; the role of active, accountable listening; and the necessity of giving all students a “you can do this” message.
