Students are pattern seekers and sense makers, but their lines of reasoning often remain hidden from the teacher. Whiteboarding is one structure that encourages student action and uncovers interesting mathematical thinking. The group will explore the practical ways that group whiteboards can facilitate rich tasks, highlight student thinking, and curate a community of discourse. Using questions pulled from curricular topics, the group will examine: How group whiteboarding fits into a unit structure; How the teacher can use it to encourage purposeful talk in the classroom: Where to get the classroom materials; The various classroom structures I’ve used up to this point; and Any other tangents that arise in the process.
