Michigan Gateways Program #306
==============================
Orchestrating Discourse
==============================
This edition of Michigan Gateways offers a look at how teachers
orchestrate the kind of discourse that is high on the agenda for
mathematics and science education today.

GATEWAYS REPORT
Our report for this program includes a review of what the major
reform documents say about discourse, along with comments from
NSTA President Marvin Druger, Alba Thompson of San Diego State
University, and others.

WHAT THE RESEARCH SAYS
A brief look at some of the recent research related to classroom
discourse.

FOR DISCUSSION...
A science teacher from Holt High School, in Holt, Michigan, and a
teacher of a multi-age class at Lansing Christian School in
Lansing, Michigan, discuss how they orchestrate discourse in their
classrooms.

SPOTLIGHT
Michigan Gateways visits a sixth-grade science class at C.W. Otto
Middle School, in Lansing, Michigan.

FROM THE NET
We sent a message out on the Internet asking teachers about
discourse in their classrooms. This new segment highlights
excerpts from some of the responses we received.
