She coauthored over 90 books, edited books or monographs, book chapters, and peer-reviewed articles including Five Practices for Orchestrating Productive Discussions (co-authored with Mary Kay Stein) and the middle and high school versions of the Taking Actionseries. Her latest books, The 5 Practices in Practice: Successfully Orchestrating Mathematics Discussion in Your Classroom (co-authored Miriam Sherin, Michael Steele and Victoria Bill) take a deep dive into the five practices at each grade band.
