Embedding Discourse within Math

Number Talks Workgroup

Our Number Talks Workgroup is an outgrowth of our Middle School Math project with Milwaukee Succeeds.

We’re working with teams from Brown Street Academy and La Causa to establish Number Talks as a regular practice within math lessons. We’ll use what we learn to help other teachers and schools do the same. As part of this effort we’ve formed a workgroup of practitioners from a number of schools who do or want to use number talks in their classrooms, or would like to see the practice spread within their school.

The workgroup meets roughly every 6 weeks to share their experiences, struggles, and ideas to help each other master the practice and bring their colleagues along.

If you’d like to join us or support the effort, let us know:
