I don't know about you, but I have lots of thinking to do about next year. I think what I'm going to do for this week is simply post once--perhaps Thursday--and I am simply going to ask for final reflections. I will include the following list of terms/concepts that I found in the last section in case it triggers any ideas.
- What next?
- MY teaching style?
- Math pedagogy?
- Randall Charles' "21 Big Ideas of Math"
- Professional development?
- The lesson list--pages 173-175
- Anchor activities?
- Homework ideas?
- Any other thoughts?
I know, for me, I need to figure out how I can deliberately structure my math instruction to better serve the needs of all students. I need to think about tiering my activities and my homework. I need to think about pretesting and compacting students out of sections of instruction (I was surprised the book didn't address this more!)--and what to do with them if I DO this! Anyway...watch for a post on THURSDAY for you to share your final thoughts and ideas!
Just a few other reminders . . . if you are a follower via Google reader, remember that July 1 is the end of that resource. Most of my followers who have done that have signed on with Bloglovin'. The link to do that is right on my home page.
Also, I am retooling many of my products in my store and adding new ones each week! Remember that my June special is buy 2, get one free . . . just send me a comment here or at the store to tell me what you bought and what equal or lesser item you would like. I am excited that a bunch of you have taken advantage of it! Watch for a different special in July!
Finally, if you don't follow me on Facebook yet, feel free to hop on over and do that. I sometimes offer special deals and you get updates on products and blog posts right away there. I also "tweet" out my blog posts if that is a way you like to follow! Thanks for your support. Watch for some posts this week on ideas for next year!
