Try–Discuss–Connect Instructional Routine

i-Ready Classroom Mathematics lessons center around the Try–Discuss–Connect Instructional Routine. This student-driven, discourse-rich routine simultaneously rehumanizes mathematics while granting access to the rich grade level conversation, connection and content. i-Ready Classroom Mathematics supports educators in helping students see their personal and cultural experiences reflected in the mathematics.
