The Hero’s Journey model is a great way to envision the progression of any lesson. In my learning environment, I’ve been experimenting with a variety of ways to inspire and engage students that have had the traditional model for the majority of their mathematics learning. The challenge that I’m facing is that these are senior high students who are pushing back and wanting to just “do the math”… the creativity and curiosity is difficult to spark. However, I’m following the idea of consistency over intensity that was mentioned in a previous module and continuing to try build their willingness to engage with productive struggle.
