These two first-grade teachers plan a visual number talk together using ten frames. After both try it out in their own classrooms, they reflect on the strategies that students used. Major themes of their discussion involve the use of a “quick look” and when to ask students to “turn-and-talk.”

Why is this important?
Teacher collaboration provides a safe venue for teachers to try new instructional strategies and reflect on their own practice.
