Wow, it has been awhile. Life happens.
Things have been going great around here – other than being really busy. Standards Based Grading is still great. So many changes that I want to do still over the summer to improve more, but definitely not going back to the traditional way.
Discovering blogging/bloggers has really changed the way that I teach and hence my students learn. I have learned so much over the course of this year it is amazing. So many great ideas out there that teachers are wiling to share. So thanks to everyone who I have stole an idea from ever! (and there are a lot of you!)
So now it’s my turn to give back. Here are a couple things that I am doing. 1) I am actually presenting at Global Math Department. These people are my math idols (and yes, I stalk them on twitter!) and I actually feel like I have something that I can present. Pi day. Last year I went ALL OUT for Pi day and I am going to share some of the things that I did. 2) I have put in a proposal to present at our state conference. I am going to present on ways to make a review worksheet a little more engaging than just a worksheet – like my kids’ favorite – TRASHKETBALL and others. Now I just need to submit my proposal to the district and ask to go! ha ha
I will share both of the above things on here when time comes and I have things ready. As well as other things I’ve done this year that I have been meaning to blog about but haven’t yet. Oh well. There are worse things that I could not be doing – like not doing SBG!
