Describes the role of the teacher as proactively supporting students' learning through co-participation. Stresses the importance of designing learning environments that support problematizing mathematical ideas, giving students mathematical authority, holding students accountable to others and to shared disciplinary norms, and providing students with relevant resources (Engle & Conant, 2002).

Multiple Modes of Instruction

Teachers use a variety of instructional strategies to engage students in teamwork, partner work, individual work, teacher-led discussions, presentations, and more.  Multiple modes of instruction provides differentiated learning opportunities for student engagement in a collaborative classroom.
