supporting the learning community

Patty Ferrant expects that all of her students actively support their own learning and that of others. Here, you will find examples from her 8th-grade classroom throughout the school year on:

  • Polite Talk and Listening
  • Supporting Others
  • Sharing and Working Cooperatively

These videos are discussed in the Inside Mathematics guide "Supporting the Learning Community, Patty Ferrant, 8th Grade," one of 10 practice-focused guides on building classroom climates for mathematical learning.

The videos document key mathematical practices observed in teacher Patty Ferrant's 8th-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."
