    The two most powerful learning techniques that I used with my math classes were Think Aloud and Math Talk. I used Think Aloud, which is teacher directed, with the entire class slowly transitioning them into Math Talk for their group work. My Think Aloud Procedure I would begin with a problem that many of my students had difficulty solving and I would Think Aloud each step as I showed them how I would get to the final answer. This works best if you actually speak aloud every thought that goes into your solution. Using this

This is important in our changing world as more and more
