The Mathematics: Cultivating a Discourse-Rich Classroom – Secondary Community of Practice is designed to engage the needs of secondary (grades 6–12) and postsecondary educators and site leaders to develop mathematicians through cultivating a discourse-rich mathematics learning environment. Participants will explore the teacher moves necessary to empower students to engage deeply in mathematics, communicate their ideas, and connect their thinking to that of others. This collaborative experience will allow participants to experience strategies that they can implement to create a culture for discourse, utilize a variety of mathematical representations, ask intentional and higher-level questions, and gather evidence of student thinking and learning. All strategies, digital activities, and digital tools experienced can be leveraged in face-to-face or virtual learning environments.
This Community of Practice requires all participants to have their own device or laptop that can connect to the internet. Participants must bring an acceptable device, power cord, and earbuds/headphones with them to the session. If a district-issued device is being used, be sure to log in to the device on the district network before attending. Device software and preferred web browsers (Chrome or Firefox) need to be up to date.
