Discussion is the lifeblood of learning. And when it works, classrooms come alive. Students are engaged, ideas flow, and every voice is heard. Quality questioning can invigorate and sustain meaningful discussions that lead to deeper understanding of content, higher-level thinking, and greater achievement not just in academics but also in life. Based on the work of education consultants and best-selling authors Jackie Acree Walsh and Beth Dankert Sattes, this video takes you to elementary school classrooms where teachers are using quality questioning practices to promote productive discussions. Walsh and Sattes present and analyze the DNA of productive discussions and discuss how a solid foundation supports different teacher-guided, small-group, and student-driven discussions. You’ll also see real-world examples of teachers planning for and conducting successful classroom discussions. Move students from passive participants to active meaning makers with Questioning for Classroom Discussion—Elementary.

If so, then why do students go into the upper elementary grades (and beyond) still counting on their fingers or experiencing math anxiety? What does research say about teaching basic math facts so they will stick? In Math Fact Fluency, experts Jennifer Bay-Williams and Gina Kling provide the answers to these questions—and so much more. This book offers everything a teacher needs to teach, assess, and communicate with parents about basic math fact instruction
