I am grateful to be reminded about the “Matthew Effect” and how it relates to math class.
I have always felt like asking questions in class was almost wasteful – I already knew who understood and who did not understand as I walked around the room (for the most part). I would always get stressed when I didn’t do some of these things that I was taught were just good teaching. I feel less stressed just knowing that it’s ok if I don’t! I also find social interactions draining – physically and emotionally draining. I’m going to add the book to my list (that keeps growing as I listen to your podcasts and take this course). Thank you!
Question I keep coming back to: How I’m going to pull kids in that just want to dig their heals in, the non-participators. I’m hoping the tasks will be so engaging and they join because they can’t resist figuring things out.
