What can I do with this? This is the question that I seek to answer with this blog. How can I improve? How can I change for the good? What changes will effect the students the most?
I am a High School math teacher in upstate NY. I currently teach Geometry (Regents), Algebra (Regents), Computer Programming (Alice and Java), and two half year courses: Applied and Consumer Math. Next year brings a new 21st century classroom (still not entirely sure what that entails) and a change over to standards based grades (#sbg). I tried SBG this year in Algebra, but really the people that have wrote nice stuff on the subject are: Dan Meyer, Shawn Cornally, and Kate Nowak.
More to follow shortly 🙂
