Course Description:

Integrating Academic Discourse into Mathematics Lessons

Often, classroom talk is centered on the teacher presenting information, the teacher asking quick answer questions, and students answering those questions. When we think about learning classrooms we want to change these teaching interactions to learning interactions.

 Research has shown that engaging students in academic discourse plays a key role in student learning, and to better engage students in this type of talk our focus here will be on a better understanding of the types of conversations that we want students to have in the classroom.

 Within learning interactions, most of the dialogue comes from students. They discuss concepts, express ideas, challenge others’ thinking, and answer deep learning questions presented by the teacher.

 In this course, we will cover topics that will help classrooms change from implementing teacher interactions to implementing learning interactions.
