Write the vision

Write the vision, make it plain. My plans for the upcoming school year.

I apologize for not keeping this blog up, nor responding to the comments in a timely fashion.  That will change this school year. I need to be more reflective on the teaching strategies I employ. I will be using this blog to do just that. My goals for the upcoming school year (kids return on August 24th) are simply to employ a more student centered learning environment. I plan to implement that by having the students do more graphical organizers (foldable and frayer models), use their interactive notebooks more, and have more discovery based lessons that involve and engage all students. I will be using the Exeter problem sets to introduce and explore concepts. I also will be questioning not only for assessment but to also probe and push students thinking. I will be teaching Pre-AP Geometry and Math Models, so I anticipate a wide array of learning styles and challenges. What are you planning to do for the upcoming school year?

  1. I’m going to introduce the interactive math notebooks to my students. I’m just getting mine together. Your example has been helpful. Thanks. I also am going to have more discovery lessons for my students. I anticipate similar challenges. I found a wonderful resource for discovery lessons to use with my grade nine students. It’s written by math teachers and piloted by different school districts, mine included.

    Here’s the link http://www.curriculum.org/csc/library/profiles/9/html/2PAPFM.htm Maybe it will be useful. You might have to copy and paste it into your browser. there’s also one for academic classes. Hope this is useful.
