This dynamic multimedia resource supports teachers in understanding: * what a classroom number talk is; * how to follow students thinking and pose the right questions to build understanding; * how to prepare for and design purposeful number talks; and * how to develop grade-level-specific strategies for the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.Number Talks includes connections to NCTM s Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, as well as an abundance of reference tables to help you quickly and easily locate strategies, number talks, and video clips.Facilitator s GuideWhile the book may be used as an independent resource, it is also structured to provide a framework for collaborative learning groups or to provide professional development opportunities through grade-level teams, individual schools, or districts. Chapter 9 serves as a facilitator s resource, providing guidance for use of the video clips by grade level along with discussion questions to support reflection and collegial conversations about number talks and students learning.DVDThe accompanying DVD provides a visual platform for teachers to reflect on their current practices and target essential understandings from their readings.
