Perhaps the most difficult recommendation of the NCTM's Standards to put into practice is that of orchestrating classroom discourse—moving from a teacher-centered classroom to one that is centered on student thinking and reasoning. Some researchers argue that traditional “chalk and talk” classrooms put all the intellectual authority in the hands of the teacher and little or no responsibility for thinking and reasoning on the shoulders of the students. Classroom discussions, in contrast, are viewed as encouraging students to construct and evaluate their own knowledge, as well as the ideas of their classmates. Few examples or guidelines exist, however, to help teachers orchestrate such discussions.

In order to develop students' capacities to “do mathematics,” classrooms must become environments in which students are able to engage actively in rich, worthwhile mathematical activity. This paper focuses on examining and illustrating how classroom-based factors can shape students' engagement with mathematical tasks that were set up to encourage high-level mathematical thinking and reasoning. The findings suggest that when students' engagement is successfully maintained at a high level, a large number of support factors are present. A decline in the level of students' engagement happens in different ways and for a variety of reasons. Four qualitative portraits provide concrete illustrations of the ways in which students' engagement in high-level cognitive processes was found to continue or decline during classroom work on tasks.

Abstract

Five practices provides a model for facilitating discussions in mathematics classrooms based on the thinking of students. The model—anticipating, monitoring, selecting, sequencing and connecting—focuses on planning prior to the lesson and, in so doing, limits the amount of improvisation required during the lesson. This new edition is situated within current educational context (e.g., CCSSM and Principles to Actions) and offers details on how to plan for and engage students in K – grade 12 classrooms in discussions that advance the learning of all students in the classroom. Included are a detailed lesson plan, lesson planning protocol, completed monitoring chart, and a list of task resources.

Long Description

5 Practices for Orchestrating Productive Mathematics Discussions, 2nd edition, provides a model for facilitating discussions in mathematics classrooms based on the thinking of students. The model—anticipating, monitoring, selecting, sequencing and connecting—focuses on planning prior to the lesson and, in so doing, limits the amount of improvisation required during the lesson. This new edition is situated within current educational context (e.g., Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and NCTM’s Principles to Actions) and offers details on how to plan for and engage students in K – grade 12 classrooms in discussions that advance the learning of all students in the classroom. Included are a detailed lesson plan, lesson planning protocol, completed monitoring chart, and a list of task resources.
