PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These cards are designed to facilitate meaningful discourse (discussions) between and among your students during a mathematics class.

They are best used when students are working to solve problems in pairs or in small collaborative groups.

You can print a set of these for each student and/or group. There are 12 cards in the set. I would recommend laminating them or printing on cardstock for repeated use. Students can lay out a card to signify which discourse strategy they are working on. For example, a student may lay out the “I agree with you because…” card when they are explaining the reasons they agree with a partner’s problem-solving strategy.

Another option is to focus on one discourse strategy during each problem solving session. For example, you could model a student using the “Can you prove your answer?” card and then ask students to keep this card out and purposefully integrate that strategy into their problem solving for the day.

Getting your students talking on a deeper level about mathematics is a valuable strategy no matter the daily topic. I hope that these cards will assist you with building a positive discourse community in your classroom.
