Math Talk: Getting Started in Whole Class and Small Groups

Posted on October 14, 2011. Filed under: Assessment, Math is a Language | Tags: , , , , , , |


What is math talk? Math talk involves rigorous, engaging, accountable discussions about math.  Math talk is a structure that is integrated throughout the math workshop.  It happens in whole class settings as well as small group settings.  You want your students to be engaging in it in math centers with partners and groups.  Math is a language. We learn a language by speaking it.  So, let’s get to talking. Here is some springboards about it to get you thinking and  talking about how to do it in your class.
