Miriam Sherin, Edith Mendez, and David Louis share in ``Talking about Math Talk'' a simple method for building discourse communities in mathematics classrooms whether the classroom is a virtual classroom of the future or a facetoface classroom of the present. Their threeprong method of explain, build, and go beyond allows students to learn how to engage in constructive dialogue on mathematical issues and at the same time learn to value the contributions of each student in the class.
