Learning Progressions

  • I can demonstrate mathematical flexibility to show what I know more than one way.
  • I can show my work so that a reader understands without asking questions.

Homework:

  • Mathematize a read aloud
    • Select a book
    • Identify the math standard
    • Anticipate what learners will notice and wonder as well as how they will “do the math”
    • Implement your mathematized read aloud (if appropriate for this topic)
    • Bonus points if someone observes your read aloud and tweets
  • Read: Implement tasks that promote reasoning and problem solving
    • What the Research Says: Implementing High Level Tasks (pp. 61-63)
    • Promoting Equity by Implementing tasks that promote reasoning and problem solving  (pp. 63-65)
