Reflection: Rules and Consequences Generating Student Discourse - Section 1: Introduction


This year, one of my goals about student discussions is to get students to hold each other accountable. I am planning on adding a section to this discussion about what happens when we break the norms. I plan to ask students what they think the consequence should be if someone puts down someone else's idea for example, or criticizes the person, rather than his/her work. I am interested to see what students come up.  My hope is that students will better monitor each other and I won't have to be the only one keeping students focused on accountable math talk.
