day 158: reinforcing expectations for listening and attending to peers

Supporting the Learning Community: By the end of the year, Mia’s second graders have practiced with what it looks like to support each other’s thinking, “looking at each others’ ideas”, though she still reinforces behavioral expectations for listening with them. She challenges students to think while they listen, asking themselves “Do I get it? Do I understand them? Do I agree with them?”

CONSIDER:
How do you reinforce expectations for listening and attending to peers?

These videos are discussed in the Inside Mathematics guide "Supporting the Learning Community, 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 "supporting the learning community."
