Mona Iehl's third-graders at Polaris Charter Academy in Chicago develop their own understanding of how to solve math problems through cognitive guided instruction. They have time to grapple with problems and are guided to new understandings by Lehl's strategic use of questions. Following a period of grappling, students engage in discourse with each other and then work to prove their mathematical thinking to the group.
