Over the last year or 2 I’ve accepted the fact that there is a rather large subset of educators that love the #MTBoS resources I send out as links or share at sessions I lead, but they are not even close to ready to join twitter. This post is for you.
Summer Homework for Math Teachers – 5 Websites You Need to Spend an Hour at and Steal Amazing Resources for Your Classroom This Fall.
So this summer I am spending 1 hour at each of the 5 websites below. I have 8 word docs (one for each unit I teach) ready to add all the resources I find. You can organize what you find any way you like. Join me in doing some teacher summer homework and search these sites with me.
I have not written a book report since I was in high school, but after reading This is Not a Test – A New Narrative on Race, Class, and Education by José Luis Vilson and listening to Vilson speak at the MCTM Spring Conference, I am inspired to write. I encourage you to read his book, this book report will not be a spoiler.
Post-recess and lunch excitement is in the air as we walk back to our classroom; where our next subject to begin is math. As we all know, routines are crucial in the classroom so we begin our student-led, mindful breathing to focus our bodies and minds for learning.
MCTM Staff Development Survey – your assistance is requested.
During the 2016 MCTM Spring Conference, a need was expressed for creating a statewide resource of how districts provide staff development during the school duty day.
The importance of this survey relies in our belief that staff development is vital for the success of any school district. Thank you for showing you value staff development by taking the time to complete this survey. Results of this survey will be shared in April.
