day 2: taking responsibility for listening in a dot talk

Polite Talk and Listening: From the first days of school, Patty Ferrant works with her middle school learners to name, explain, practice, and expect strategies for focused talk and attentive listening.

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."
