One of the Common Core Mathematical Practices is to construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. Promoting mathematical discourse can be a daunting task for teachers of young students. In this One Best Thing, an early elementary teachers shares strategies for increasing math discourse for young learners via digital drawings, written conversation and video capture.
The discourse I could have about this book! Wonderful, concrete examples of what is readily available at any level- be it primary or intermediate learners. The tools are universal and I’m excited to see how I can help mys students stretch and grow as a result of some of these tools.
This book really helps drive instruction and presents some great ideas to make Math more accessible to young learners. Real world applications. Understand concepts. I’m really glad I download this book.
