Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Fraction Multiplication Recipes - Section 3: Student Practice


I am reminded of how important discourse and questioning is during our math time. Many times, through conferencing with students, you not only discover where your students are at, but you can also push them one step further as they are ready. 

For example, in this conference, Adding Labels, I was able to provide individualized instruction by calling attention to the labeling process. 

Also, during this conference, Simplifying Measurements, I encouraged a student to make sure measurements are in simplest form. 

At times, I'll make an announcement to everyone in the class or I'll invite students back up to the front carpet for a mid-lesson conversation about labeling. Other times, it's more powerful to have one-on-one conversations with students.
