I have completed the course now. I really like the approach on multiple, smaller assessment pieces instead of a unit test, and of getting rid of review days.
I have a very busy class of grade 8 students who like to chat with their friends when they are given math work to do. I don’t love making them answer multiple similar questions from their textbook during a class period, but I also need time to converse with individuals on their progress. Do you have some suggestions on enriching activities students can work on independently while I conference?
