Kobett, Beth; Karp, Karen – National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2020
We often evaluate student thinking and their work from a deficit point of view, particularly in mathematics, where many teachers have been taught that their role is to diagnose and eradicate students' misconceptions. But what if instead of focusing on what students don't know or haven't mastered, we identify their mathematical strengths and build…

Dougherty, Barbara J.; Karp, Karen S. – National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2019
Do your students say that one object is "bigger" than another without attending more precisely to the attribute they are comparing? Do they have difficulty naming numbers from 11 to 19? Do some students still count all while their classmates are counting on or counting by tens? What tasks can you offer--what questions can you ask--to…
