**IF YOU ARE NEW TO TALKING POINTS, HERE'S A STARTING POINT:**

**TALKING POINTS MATERIALS** (just the starting point)

Here is my brief overview of the procedure we used during the talking points activity (the version for teachers/PD):

Here's the original chapter that inspired me:

Here are the first sets of Talking Points I created that are NOT about math. The point of doing non-math Talking Points is to establish a nonthreatening baseline in which everybody has equal access to the topic. I want to use these as a warm-up activity to set up a baseline for exploratory talk, then get kids to dive straight into math without commenting or stopping to form a transition.

**A "CLASSIFYING" TASK FOR COLLABORATION**

Lunar Pages (as described by Tina Cardone at the closing My Favorites session)

**MY FAVORITES**

Based on Pam Wilson's Plickers 'My Favorite' — Julie Reulbach had the brilliant idea of having kids laminate their Plicker onto the outside back cover of their INB so they can hold it up in answer to multiple-choice hinge questions (thank you, Nik Doran!) and VOILÀ! You have an ongoing record of everybody's ongoing response patterns to Formative Assessment Questions!

If you need to knit or crochet a small stellated dodecahedron of your own, here is the free pattern online (by one of my knitting heroes, Norah Gaughan): http://www.berroco.com/patterns/celestine-sox (and the Museum of Math post that started it all)
