Increasing Writing During Math Instruction
Check out Jill's great idea for working on writing during math time: Along with improving their written reflections, she is going to do some math quick writes by asking them thoughtful questions. - Something I did this summer and how it involved math. - Why is math your favorite subject? and when do you NOT like math? - Write to another student and explain (with detail) how they can get an “4” on their next math test. - Pick one of the standards of mathematical practice and explain how you are good at it. - Pick one of the standards of mathematical practice and explain why you are not good at it and how you plan to improve. Let's add to her google doc and create a fantastic list to get students writing more during math time.
