Unlocking Mathematical Understanding Together through FACT Meetings
Bray, Wendy S.; Johnson, Jillian D.; Rivera, Nancy; Fink, Lee-Ann; Bauduin, Charity; Schoen, Robert C.
Teaching Children Mathematics, v25 n6 p371-377 Apr 2019
As part of the Foundations for Success in STEM project at Florida State University, more than thirty teams of teachers have used the Formative Assessment Collaborative Team (FACT) meeting model to work together toward better understanding of their students' mathematical thinking and its implications for instruction. This article provides a brief overview of the model and an account of a FACT meeting cycle in action. The article also reflects on essential elements of the FACT meeting model and teachers' perceptions of the impact that a yearlong commitment to participation had on their instructional practice.
