Making number talks matter even more

In this exciting sequel to the bestselling Making Number Talks Matter, you’ll delve further into the power of Number Talks! Through real stories, you’ll meet teachers who are learning to  listen closely to students and prompting them to figure things out for themselves. You’ll learn how they make on-the-spot decisions, continually advancing and deepening the conversation. Personal and accessible, the book highlights:

  • the kinds of questions that elicit deeper thinking;
  • ways to navigate tricky, problematic, or just plain hard exchanges in the classroom;
  • how to more effectively use wait time during Number Talks;
  • the importance of creating a safe learning environment; and
  • how to nudge students to think more flexibly without directing their thinking.

Bring your classroom alive as students question, challenge, and debate their way to new math discoveries!
