The first day of school is right around the corner and I am getting all anxious to meet my new students. I am hoping to start the year off with my students. I am teaching only Integrated Math 1 this year for six periods.
Some of my plans this year:
I am looking forward to implementing more writing for my students. I am always hearing from them that this is Math and not English so they think that they can get out of writing. Well not gonna happen.
Another thing I want to do is not use pencils in class. I did this last year and it was good. Mistakes are excellent learning opportunities and if we are using pencils that can be erased, then we are missing out on a valuable learning tool (at no additional cost, and what teacher doesn't like free).
I need to sit down and think of some of the other things I need to do for this year. Any suggestions?
