This capstone aims to answer the question, How can teachers increase student-student discourse in math classrooms? It is answered through the creation process of a curriculum heavily based on students learning through discourse with their peers. This curriculum developed by the author aims to create unique learning experiences for students. Opportunities to struggle and learn through conversations in a safe environment is the basis of the curriculum. There is also a strong emphasis on high levels facilitating learning through student-student discourse which is typically uncommon in a traditional mathematics classroom and curriculum.
