This series of 13 brief videos (1 to 14 min. each) features practical strategies to promote student voice within the mathematics classroom. Ontario teacher Carrie Byer describes and demonstrates how respectful interactions, student engagement, accountable talk, and dynamic groupings create a community of math learners. The videos highlight a three-part problem-solving lesson involving volume, surface area, and the relationship between them. Print resources include a Viewer's Guide, related monographs, graphic organizers, and a Lesson Plan (pdf and doc formats)
