Small Group Student to Student Discourse Professional Development at TCU

Fostering and Improving Small-Group, Student-to-Student Discourse

Individual Option

Fostering student-to-student discourse in small groups can be challenging. Simply putting students in groups is not enough to improve mathematical thinking; the quality of the student-to-student interaction affects the development of student understanding. Teachers need to support students in learning how to communicate effectively, namely share ideas, listen to others, and critically evaluate the work of others.

This professional development workshop will guide middle school and high school teachers in learning how to interact with their students while they are working collaboratively to promote and improve student-to-student communication.

This option is for middle or high school mathematics teachers enrolling in the professional development individually. The course consists of six sessions from 5 to 7 p.m. on the following dates:

  • Monday, August 27, 2018
  • Monday, September 17, 2018
  • Monday, October 8, 2018
  • Monday, October 29, 2018
  • Monday, November 26, 2018
  • Monday, December 10, 2018

The cost of the workshop is $250 per person. The fee covers course materials. Note: After registering below, you will receive a confirmation email that will include directions for submitting the course fee.
