day 2: setting expectations for accountable and supportive sharing and cooperative work

Sharing and Working Cooperatively: In the first days of school, Mia reinforces with her students how to take care of their learning environment, ensuring that their tools and materials are put away at the end of a lesson. She also addresses concerns about how students can maintain a productive noise level: “I’m going to ask you next time to remember your number two voice.”

CONSIDER:
What expectations for accountability support sharing and working cooperatively?

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."
