Play the video above and use the resource links on the right as directed. Before you begin make sure you have opened the Module One Manual. In Module One you will learn how to design supported opportunities for all of your students to engage in discussions about mathematical content with diverse partners. Using the manuals and links you will explore lessons showcasing how other teachers have implemented lessons that facilitate mathematical discussions. You will also be provided with instructional strategies for implementing discussions with your students around problem solving.
