I am in the process of putting some of my ideas ideas into practice. How can this can be done effectively? This blog will serve two purposes. The first will be to help me to reflect upon my transition into the Common Core Curriculum and evaluate my effectiveness as a teacher/coach in this role. It will also serve as a place where I can share what I have done, and how I feel I can improve upon the practices I am implementing. I hope that you will visit my blog and read about some of the things that have worked and some of the ways I will be improving things that did not work. Here are just a few ideas that I will be using in my class. My overall unit is going a little more slowly than anticipated due to the amount of MSA preparation I have been creating to help my students. This Ratio and Proportional Reasoning Unit is coming along slowly, but I am also hoping to really find ways to help my students own their learning. Here is a sneak peak of what I am creating for my class.
