Number Talks in the Elementary Classroom

Workshop Description

Join us as we explore how to incorporate a low-preparation, but high-yield 15-minute classroom conversation into your daily routine.  Through this session, you will observe number talks with real students, engage in number talks as a participant, understand how to prepare and design your own number talks, and investigate computation strategies that mirror the progression of students’ understanding.
