What do NORMS have to do with discourse? How do teachers and students continually use NORMS to foster the learning environment? If the classroom learning environment is not established from the first day and continued to be nurtured, students will struggle engaging with each other in any type of math learning or math discourse. NORMS are created by the students so the students understand how to collaboratively and productively work together.

This session will start with an activity that can be used to create small group and whole group NORMS. The concepts/tools in this session will then focus on structures and activities that continue to build the learning community.
