Ideas in Action: Hand it Over to the Students

Ideas in Action: Hand it Over to the Students
Description

In this video from Making the Case, math teacher Melanie Smith describes and demonstrates how she structures her lessons so that she can leave the front of the classroom as soon as possible. This approach allows maximum time for students to work together in pairs and groups, increasing the opportunity for argumentation and critique, the goal of Standard 3 of the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice.
