Finding ways to help students effectively communicate their mathematical thinking is a challenge for teachers across the country. Through a Professional Development Schools (PDS) partnership between the University of Maryland and several elementary schools in a neighboring district, school and university partners worked together to explore, discuss, and reflect on the challenges of helping students write about mathematics. Along with gaining insights into effective instructional strategies, partners from both institutions gained a deeper appreciation for the benefits of school-university dialogue.
