I have been listening to the podcast, catching up on episodes from the beginning, and I am (1) validated that some of the things I am already doing are cited as “best practices” within this math community (insert pat on the back here!) and (2) excited to integrate 3 Act Tasks and Estimation and “All. The. Things” into my math class. I’m struggling, though, as I sit down and try to think through a unit plan; I can’t wrap my mind around how it all fits! In our school we have Math Agreements that dictate some of the daily/weekly tasks that are “must-dos,” common assessments (pretests, quizzes, tests, retests), number talks, PBILs, etc., so I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed at the logistics of how I can honor the top-down expectations given to me AND integrate some of these new (to me) practices into the classroom.
