You know those times wen you see your students face light up because they ‘get it’, those lightbulb moments that we teachers kind of live for? That was me after I read all about the goals and progress logs. I am a Special Education teacher and have been for several years. I write goals, track and discuss progress daily! I teach my students the value of knowing their weaknesses and growing from there. As a teacher, I feel I do this for myself only in a way less structured and meaningful way- that’s what we do as adults, right?
But this!! This is genius! I want to build a language rich, productive struggling , functional math environment for my students. I am stoked to have this math ‘happy place’ to keep me focused and driven and learning how to achieve all those things.
