Publisher: Math Solutions
Author: Nancy Canavan Anderson
Classroom Discussions in Math: A Facilitator's Guide to Support Professional Learning of Discourse and the Common Core provides preservice and inservice instructors, coaches, and facilitators with real, classroom-based video examples that illustrate the principles and practices covered in the authors’ best-selling book, Talk Moves: A Teacher’s Guide for Using Classroom Discussions in Math, Grades K–6,Third Edition. Ideally, the three components—facilitator’s guide, DVDs, and teacher’s guide—are used together. The video examples demonstrate how the talk tools described in the book can be used successfully in typical classrooms.
This resource offers
• 75 video clips, totaling five hours of video filmed in actual grades K–6 classrooms;
• 20 sessions, totaling thirty to forty hours of professional development experiences;
• 12 lesson plans aligned to Common Core State Standards; and
• more than twenty ready-to-use reproducible handouts.
The 240-page guide offers twenty professional development sessions centered on video clips illustrating best talk practices in action. The sessions are divided into chapters that correspond to the chapters in Talk Moves: A Teacher’s Guide for Using Classroom Discussions in Math, Grades K–6, Third Edition (available separately). Included in each of the sessions are activities to use in conjunction with the video clips, reproducible handouts, discussion questions, and assignments for participants.
The accompanying two DVDs organize the seventy-five video clips in two ways for viewing convenience: by chapter and by grade level. The labels on all video clips indicate the section of the facilitator’s guide in which the clips are used. The clips range from one to fifteen minutes in length with a total viewing time of approximately five hours.
