[Xmca-l] Re: Fwd: NYTimes.com: Why Do Americans Stink at Math?



Mike, Andy,

Yes, a great article.
  The insights that were generated by a person from Japan observing the
degree of *private* individual classroom teaching [with the
resulting isolation of teachers in America] in contrast to Japanese
teachers engaging in ongoing *lesson* dialogues.
The centrality of ongoing *lesson talk* as what is needed to sustain change
contrasts with the common practices of teachers in American schools left to
figure out best practice alone.

How do we shift our practices in schools to encourage ongoing dialogical
*lesson talk* among teachers?
