Observing Student Communication
  Introduction | Student Work | Group Example | Classroom Practice | Observe a Classroom | Your Journal


To recap what we've just done: We introduced a problem, observed a student's work, and considered communication in a classroom setting through video and through the viewer which highlighted teaching moments. Now we would like to you to reflect on and answer at least one of the following questions in your journal.

Questions to write and reflect about:
  • What types of mathematical communication are you interested in trying in your own classroom? How will you go about doing that? What are you hoping to gain from this work?
  • How do your practices compare to those in the video? For example, in communicating about student errors?
Three ways to write and reflect:
  • Use pen and paper.
  • Use a word processor.
  • Use the form below.
Be sure to save what you have written before you navigate out of the journal section.


Your work will be displayed in a printer-friendly format to enable you to print.

Thank you for writing in your journal. Please keep your entries in whatever format you choose -- you will find them useful for reference later.
