day 2: attuning one’s teaching to what your students already talk about

Supporting Others: Mia engages her students in anticipating ways to respect each other’s process. She reinforces that it takes time to develop mathematical thinking and strategies, and suggests questions they might ask each other. While it’s important to be polite, Mia lets her students know that it’s okay to “protect my math.”

CONSIDER:
How do you attune your teaching to what your students already talk about?

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."
