Implementing Formative Assessment Lessons at Middle School and High School a. How do we create classroom culture? b. How do we facilitate “staff” doing mathematics together to understand purpose of the lesson, understand the mathematics before giving it to students, work as a learning community to discuss techniques, purpose of using student work, types of comments to put on student papers, how to have a plenary discussion? What are the important mathematical ideas to be drawn from students? What teacher moves help hold all students accountable for their own learning? c. Making time for lessons?
