Teachers often have students publicly share their mathematical thinking as part of classroom instruction. Before reading further, we invite you to stop and think about this practice by writing down your responses to the following two questions:
Shari L. Stockero, firstname.lastname@example.org, is an assistant professor of mathematics education at Michigan Technological University at Houghton.
Laura R. Van Zoest, email@example.com, is a professor of mathematics education at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo. They are interested in understanding the process of becoming an effective mathematics teacher and the ways in which teacher educators can accelerate that process.
