Abstract:
How teachers can use students' conversations to assess their mathematical understanding. Examples from third, fourth, and fifth grade classrooms highlight how mathematical conversations were used in different lessons to assess student understanding and differentiate instruction. Teachers will gain a clear understanding of questioning and communication techniques to better assess student learning.
