Talking Points Routine

Math educators need resources to support them in promoting listening and talking, sharing views, surfacing beliefs, and building community. Talking Points can serve as a wonderful vehicle for accomplishing these goals!!  Talking Points is an engaging activity in which small groups of individuals (educators, students, etc.) use a structured protocol to discuss a selected set of prompts.Talking Points are intentionally designed to be provocative, somewhat vague, and to stimulate reactions that participants can work with as part of their discussions. Each prompt receives three rounds of attention. It is often useful to have participants invest a few moments of “individual think time” recording their initial reactions before engaging in the first round. To learn more, explore the links below.
