Each week, I think about my teaching in a new way and this week has been no exception. The way I use whole class instruction is similar to the ways talked about in this chapter (mini-lesson, literature, and assessment), but Laney added layers to these components that I had not even thought of – As always there is more work to do! J
For once - I got this one! My whole class instruction is ALWAYS only a mini-lesson at the beginning of the lesson. It is an intro to the small group lessons which are differentiated. It can be a time when students are given information and an overview of the lesson.
One area I want to improve on...math literature. I LOVED reading during math, but I struggle a little in finding great books. I have my tried and true favs, but finding new ones can be a challenge - READ on to the other linked blogs, they have TONS of ideas!
What are you ideas for math literature?
I PROMISE to have a fuller blog next week - 2 MORE days...I can make it! :)
