SMP #3 asks students to construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. It can be difficult for students to be successful in this because they have not had much practice or experience. This presentation will highlight strategies that allow students to communicate their own thinking and then respond to the thinking of others. By asking students to give feedback to their peers, they become the audience and the authority, as opposed to the teacher, who takes on the role of a facilitator. Come learn how you can give your students more opportunities to reason, communicate, and take responsibility for their own learning!
