Author:Math Forum: Bridging Research and Practice Group (BRAP)
Description: This videopaper by the Math Forum's Bridging Research and Practice Group (BRAP) of teacher practitioners and Math Forum Staff opens a conversation around the use of discourse as a basis for encouraging students' mathematical thinking and supporting teachers' professional growth. Reflecting an attempt to integrate practice and research, it reports on findings culled from discussions of research articles and chapters, classroom practice, and videotapes of classroom teaching, noting links between these findings and research into student learning and instruction. Video clips from the teachers' classrooms illustrate the interventions discussed; a challenge problem and lessons for various levels are detailed; corresponding student predictions are presented; and readers' reactions and input are encouraged throughout.
