Henning, John E.; Balong, Megan
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v84 n2 p47-51 2011
This article introduces the framing discussion, an informal discussion of a mathematical problem that takes place at the beginning of a lesson or unit. The purpose of the framing discussion is to assess student knowledge, motivate student interest, and to serve as a basis for guiding students to more formal mathematical knowledge. The article discusses the design criteria and the discourse moves necessary to execute an effective framing discussion. (Contains 1 figure.)
