CONSIDER:
How does Mia engage her students in using tools to show and explain their thinking to each other?

These videos are discussed in the Inside Mathematics guide "Engaging in Mathematical Discourse, Mia Buljan, 2nd grade," one of 10 practice-focused guides on building classroom climates for mathematical learning.

The videos document key mathematical practices observed in teacher Mia Buljan's 2nd grade classroom over the course of a school year. In the guide (available as a PDF or an iBook download), you can explore extended narratives and questions for reflection around "engaging in mathematical discourse."
