Poster Power.

This just happened, I didn’t plan to do this. But, lately I’ve been culminating all my units with a group made poster that illustrates the groups understanding of some problem. It’s all about students communicating mathematics. This time I asked them to invent their own problem.



Latest School Epedemic: Word Walls

I think mostly in response to suggestions of state officials which translates too administrator edicts, word walls are becoming prevalent throughout the my high school. I’ve had a student created wall in the past where students made word posters with the word, definition and a picture, but I never did this activity frequently enough to have a comprehensive list of the important course vocabulary. This year I’ve tried something different: the idea is to have a “word of the day,” the wall then serves as a record of those important words that students are expected to know. “Word of the day” communication started out pretty strong but lately I haven’t been printing the words out in time. I just got caught up with it. Doesn’t it look awesome!?
