With Talking Points, I keep finding that the more I push control down into student groups, the better they self-regulate and dive into the material.
So here is a self-guided intro to Talking Points for Algebra 1 students.
Also, with blind students in the classroom, it becomes even more important for equity that student groups speak and listen equitably to ensure inclusion. So with Talking Points, in addition to handouts, I can give a blind student the Word document on a flash drive, they can plug it into a Braille reader (which allows them to read a line at a time), and everybody is off to the races.
The ever-growing Google Drive folder for new sets of math Talking Points is at http://bit.ly/1eHGPWM.
