## Creating a Culture of Questioning

Icon:

In this video from Making the Case, classroom teachers and math education experts focus on the role of questions and discussion in their classroom. In specific, they describe how questions can encourage argumentation and critique, rather than just eliciting correct or incorrect answers in an evaluative way. Classroom examples also illuminate this Common Core Standard for Mathematical Practice in action.

## Ideas in Action: Group Strategically

Icon:

In this video from Making the Case, Phil Daro, a developer of the Common Core Standard for Mathematics, explains how group work can help students learn math content and provides opportunities for argumentation and critique. It is important to structure groups so that they are productive, students are working to understand each other, and the right level of support and challenge are present among members of the group.

## Response to Instruction and Intervention (RTI²)

Icon:

Response to Instruction and Intervention (RTI²) is a three-tiered approach to student learning that is focused on prevention and early intervention. RTI² uses assessment for instruction, intervention, and transition between these tiers for K-12 students as they develop skills in reading, reading comprehension, reading fluency, mathematics calculation, mathematics problem solving, and written expression. Learn more about RTI² and its implementation from experts at the Tennessee Department of Education.
