302: Conferring and Questioning to Spark Deeper Understanding
Questioning has become one of the biggest challenges of teachers everywhere as they rise to the challenge of transforming their classrooms into communities of mathematicians. The CCSS Standards of Mathematical Practice require that children engage in problem solving with tenacity and confidence and that teachers foster a climate conducive to the generating of mathematics rather than the explanation of it. Teachers have been told that they have a new roleÑone of a facilitator, rather than a teller. But being a facilitator is not sufficient; we are also mentors. Precisely how to question in ways that engage learners to go deeper into the mathematics at hand will be the focus of this presentation. Digital video will be used to study it in action and participants will leave with a ÒLandscape of Teacher Change on Conferring and QuestioningÓ to monitor their own growth and development. _x000B__x000B_EVALUATION POLL CODE:

I wanted to learn what the teachers found most challenging and how coaching supported their learning. _x000B_ In examining the videos of the Number Talks, I noticed that even when teachers use teaching strategies that are recommended for engaging students in productive mathematical discussions, it can be hard to let go of familiar practices that we think of as "teaching" (such as asking leading questions or verifying students' answers), but that when we are able to forego those habits, students' agency and authority has more space to grow.
