I do my best to teach my 7th graders to be specific about what ideas they are sharing. I often misinterpret their words to encourage more specific responses. Using measurements is another good way to foster this practice. I also like how being specific about the number of fractions, like 3 one-fourths can help increase their fraction sense.
