Seeing Math Elementary: Discussion

three young kids watching closelyDiscussion plays a vital role in every Seeing Math™ Elementary course, enhancing the impact of case-based learning, fostering collaboration, and building community.

In both face-to-face sessions and in web-based discussion forums, Seeing Math™ Elementary encourages participating teachers to share and discuss questions, observations, and experiences as they relate to the featured topic or case study. Facilitators moderate discussions from the side, channeling contributions to key learning points and ensuring a thoughtful, probing dialogue.

The video case studies at the core of Seeing Math™ Elementary establish a framework for "grounded" discussions, in which the participants base their contributions on specific events portrayed in the case. Provocative discussion fosters among participating teachers a reflective attitude that is instrumental to enriching their practices and improving student learning.

Discussion creates a shared learning experience that not only helps participants enhance their own knowledge and practices, but also connects key learning points to the needs and objectives of their schools or districts. By establishing a forum in which teachers share ideas and best practices for teaching math, Seeing Math™ Elementary builds a collaborative environment focused on continuous learning and improvement that lasts long after participants complete the program.
