This summer I will be blogging once each week to reflect on things I am doing over the summer relative to teaching. I might blog about something I learned from a participant at a workshop. Or I might blog about one of my summer goals, learning the computational layer in Desmos. Or I might blog about a book I am reading related to teaching.
This year at Best Practices night I presented about a teaching technique called "Stand and Talk". It was based off of Sara VanDerWerf's blog and talk that I saw at NCTM. (My blog posts about this technique can be found at Day 150 and Day 151 in my blog from the 2017-2018 school year.) I also picked up some ideas from other teachers at that session. Specifically, I want to try Kelly M. Spoon's (@kellymspoon) Desmos card sort activities. (As I was writing this blog, I tried to search for it and could not find it online.) So, I sent her a tweet and will modify my blog with the link once she sends it to me.
Stay tuned for week 2 - prepping for some workshops and looking ahead to teaching at my new school.
