Next Generation Preschool Math: Can video-based PD work? (re: Math Talk)

As part of its NSF-funded research, the NGPM project is exploring the use of PD videos such as these, which focus on the role of math talk in preschool classrooms. The four brief clips (3-5 min. each) in this blog entry show teachers discussing the nature and importance of math talk and demonstrating how they promote it with their students.

CCSS Practice Standard 6Common Core’s Mathematical Practice 6, Attend to Precision, calls for students to be clear in their reasoning, calculation, and communication through the precise use of words, symbols, units of measure, mathematical expressions, and processes. Students recognize various levels of precision and apply them appropriately; they calculate accurately and efficiently. These resources are intended to help teachers and math specialists understand the intent and scope of MP 6 and plan for successful attainment in the classroom. A companion Classroom collection, Implementing CCSS Practice Standard 6, includes resources to help teachers foster this practice with their students.
