Orchestrating Productive Mathematics Discussions: Teachers Taking On and Overcoming the Challenges
Dr. Margaret (Peg) Smith has authored and co-authored nearly one hundred books and articles on mathematics education including 5 Practices for Orchestrating Mathematics Discussion, NCTM's best-selling book since it was published in 2011. During this #ILMathCom, Dr. Smith will help us grow in our abilities to facilitate productive discussions by focussing on the challenges discussions present and how teachers can overcome these challenges. This session will begin by providing participants with a brief overview of the 5 practices model for orchestrating productive discussions (Smith & Stein, 2018) and identifying challenges that teachers face in implementing the five practices model. Participants will analyze artifacts drawn from middle school classrooms in which teachers are successfully meeting the challenges (Smith & Sherin, 2019). As a result of engaging in this session, participants will learn ways to plan for and manage classroom discussions. They will leave the session with practical suggestions they can begin to immediately implement in their own classrooms.
