A teacher interviews a student

A K–5 Digital Interview Tool

Listening to Learn helps teachers learn how their students reason numerically―information that’s essential for planning instruction.

Interviews

Focus on how students reason numerically

Each interview includes twelve problems for students to solve mentally. Students’ answers to questions are only the starting place―their explanations provide insight into how they reason, which is invaluable for planning instruction.
