Resources: Instruction: Math Project: Discourse
Discourse in mathematics instruction refers to the verbal interchange of ideas – both written and oral ways of representing, thinking, and communicating – that teachers and students use as they perform mathematical tasks. By orchestrating and promoting discourse, teachers can actively engage students in mathematical thinking. In discourse-rich mathematics classes, students explain and discuss the strategies and processes they use in solving mathematical problems, thereby connecting their own everyday language with the specialized vocabulary of mathematics. Through discourse, teachers can better understand the mathematical needs of the class—what the students know, misconceptions they may have, and how these might have developed.
