Improving Student Discourse Through Debate in the Math Classroom
Presented by: Ethan Weker
In the Standards of Mathematical Practice, Math Practice 3 states that students should be able to “Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others”. However, to do so requires a lot of modeling, structure, and practice. Debates can be a great vehicle to achieve these goals in a manner that gives all students a voice and an opportunity to develop and communicate their ideas and hear the ideas of their peers. Learn about how a variety of informal and formal debate formats can be used on a daily basis to get every one of your students speaking with greater frequency and more confidence.
