Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Passing Through? - Section 3: Explore


I find it very beneficial to engage the students (while exploring in teams of two) in conversation as they are working on the task.  I want to promote discussion about their thinking and the idea that you can learn from each other.  The video in the resource section of the Explore section captures how a student can engage their peer about their thinking.  I find it necessary to facilitate many of these opportunities for my 1st grade students.
