Mary Truxaw, Thomas DeFranco 

November 2007, Volume 101, Issue 4, Page 268

In particular, this teacher’s strategic use of verbal assessment helped students generate mathematical understanding. An example of the model is discussed. Sample classroom discussions are provided that revolve around summing reciprocals of the factors of 28.
