day 158: matching our ideas to the problem

Establishing and following Classroom Routines: By the end of the year, Mia’s students are able to take on responsibility for their own thinking. By May, her students are able to describe their thinking in relationship to others’, giving recommendations to peers about ways to refine their thinking. Routines that Mia introduced in the beginning of the year are now comfortable for students (e.g. “Tell your hand”) and they are focused on the math content.

CONSIDER:
What questions can you ask your students to help them surface their math ideas?

These videos are discussed in the Inside Mathematics guide "Taking Responsibility for Learning, 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 "taking responsibility for learning."
