    Listen to all Making Math Moments that Matter podcasts – DONE!

    Choose 2-3 podcasts to relisten to and make notes/ideas/plans while listening – maybe #2 Sparking Curiousiy, #3 Fuel Sense Making, and #4 Ignite Teacher Action???

    Read/skim Making Math Meaningful, Good Questions & Eyes on Math & make notes/ideas/plans while reading – STARTED my Marian Small learning journey!

    Use the tasks outlined in “How to Start the School Year off Right” podcast to inspire curiousity and build trust as soon as school starts. – collaboratively build classroom norms, don’t start with a syllabus, random seating arrangements, …

    Use the Wipebooks and SmartBoard regularly and with intention. Make math visual. Don’t just “wing it” and use them for “fun” time.

    Plan and prepare low floor/high ceiling problems regularly to include ALL students.<br>



    Specific focus goals will come after I meet with my new grade 7 mathematics PLC team to decide on our teacher inquiry quest. We were chosen to participate in a Manitoba Teacher Inquiry Project (MTIP) for 2019/2020 school year. I’ve spent my summer trying to get updated on what is new and what is working, so that I have something to offer the group and new and improved teaching ideas to share with my students.

    Hi Sheri!

    Great stuff with your progress log. DONE all the podcast episodes? Wow, nice work!

    Glad to hear that you’re looking to hone in on Sparking Curiosity, Fuelling Sense Making, and Igniting Teacher Action! Those 3 big ideas are what we really advocate here in the Academy as well as in the Online Workshop. In the meantime, it might be worth checking out this course inside of the academy.

    Love the direction you’re heading in! Keep it up!
