Reflection: Debate Order of Operations - Section 1: Do Now


When you give students an opportunity to discuss and possibly disagree with one another's strategies, it is important to set guidelines.  I use the terminology of healthy debate vs argument when I encourage students to discuss their math.  This reminds students to be respectful and a good listener.  I often refer to an Accountable Talk Poster that I have in my classroom.
