But it wouldn't be content based and that's a lot of grading.

Seems like curriculum writers need to go back to math school.<br /><br />One idea which matches up with cognitive science and learning is the idea that should be taught over a period of time. Maybe you can break your 90 minutes into 3 sections. Each skill is studied over a three day period. Day 1: skill 1. Day 2: skill 1,2. Day 3: skill 1,2,3. Day 4: skill 2,3,4. etc.<br /><br />Then every fourth day is a formal assessment day. Or something like that.Mr.Smithhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03963355754980851988noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2467202639598238063.post-77973830014683611832016-05-22T22:02:07.129-05:002016-05-22T22:02:07.129-05:00Our curriculum expects two skills to be be taught ...Our curriculum expects two skills to be be taught each day. We meet every other day for 90 minutes. I enjoy the workshop model<br />and just complete two rotations of it every class period. I have found that traditional homework either doesn't get completed or is copies from another student. I am going to look into writing based homework as mentioned above. I also like your idea of having bell ringers be the same across prep and as a way to teach basic math skills. I will use exit tickets as means for assessing content based knowledge.ShalandaLeighhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03958969474369636088noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2467202639598238063.post-3590762248591127482016-05-22T21:57:34.053-05:002016-05-22T21:57:34.053-05:00I really like the idea of writing based homework f...I really like the idea of writing based homework for math.

I'm looking to switch to SBG for next year, but our curriculum also thinks that every day should be a new topic (we meet every other day for 90 minutes). The only way I can think is pairing standards together and doing them both over two days of class, but I don't know how that will work out. There's so much in Algebra 2 nowadays, and we have to be ready for a state EOC mid-April.Mrs. Pertierrahttps://www.blogger.com/profile/07187806429629743125noreply@blogger.com
