Teaching for Robust Understanding of Mathematics, or TRU Mathematics, is a five-dimensional framework for creating effective learning environments, classroom activities, and professional development for teachers. Developed and in use by educators all over the world, TRU Mathematics provides a common vocabulary with which teachers can evaluate and discuss their role in the educational process with other teachers and administrators.

In Part Three of this four-part series, Dr. Alan Schoenfeld (Professor of Education, U.C. Berkeley) introduces the TRU Math Conversation Guide, a tool for teachers to use when reflecting on their own and discussing one another's lessons and style. He gives the audience an opportunity to practice having a TRU Math conversation by presenting two different lessons taught by the same teacher before and after learning to use the Formative Assessment Lessons and the TRU dimensions.

This course was recorded at AETN studios in Conway, Arkansas on May 10-11, 2016.

Teaching for Robust Understanding of Mathematics, or TRU Mathematics, is a five-dimensional framework for creating effective learning environments, classroom activities, and professional development for teachers. Developed and in use by educators all over the world, TRU Mathematics provides a common vocabulary with which teachers can evaluate and discuss their role in the educational process with other teachers, parents, and administrators.

In Part Four of this four-part series, Dr. Alan Schoenfeld (Professor of Education, U.C. Berkeley) presents ways that the TRU Math framework has been implemented at classroom, school-wide, and district-wide levels. TRU dimensions have been used in San Francisco and Chicago, and are beginning to be used in Oakland, California. Dr. Schoenfeld particularly focuses on ways teachers and administrators can observe students and one another in order to improve instructional effectiveness.
