Jung Colen of the Developmental Studies Department and her collaborators translated into Korean a popular mathematics education textbook, Classroom Discussions in Math: A Teacher’s Guide for Using Talk Moves to Support the Common Core and More.

S.H. Chapin, C. O’Connor, and N.C. Anderson originally published the textbook in 2013. One editorial review states: “[Classroom Discussions in Math] offers an award-winning, unparalleled look at the significant role that classroom discussions can play in teaching mathematics and deepening students’ mathematical understanding and learning. Based on a four-year research project funded by the U.S. Department of Education, this resource is divided into three sections: Section I: Getting Started: Mathematics Learning with Classroom Discussions, Section II: The Mathematics: What Do We Talk About? Section III: Implementing Classroom Discussions. This multimedia third edition continues to emphasize the talk moves and tools that teachers can use to facilitate whole-class discussions that deepen students’ mathematical understanding.”
