Strategies to Encourage Discourse with Struggling Students

Common Core Standard 3: Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others

Tara Molesky and Nikolett Varsa

Harper’s Choice Middle School


Purpose of Session

  • Collaborate and share ideas that have successfully encouraged discourse in your classroom with struggling students.


Our Story…

  • We’re piloting a new seminar program. Students have a double block of math every day.

  • Creating lessons that promote mathematical discourse has proven to be difficult at times.

  • We image other teachers face this frustration too!


Successful Example

  • Topic: Estimation

  • Pictures, that students can “buy”, are placed around the room.

  • Students had a sheet that had them buy at least 5 items.

  • Students rounded the cost of each item that they wanted to buy.

  • At the end, students had to add up how much they would approximately spend

  • Class discussion

    • Why did they round the way they did?

    • Compare answers with others.


Now it’s your turn…

  • Think of an activity that you have used for one of the topics that successfully captured the attention of your students and encouraged discussion.

  • Break into groups, and please share your examples.

  • Complete the handout and we will collect examples that you don’t mind sharing!

  • Activities will be emailed to you all for future use!
