I am going to be observed on this short skills unit that I have chosen to flip. I asked for the observation - our administrators let us choose the day and time.
The videos I created are OK ... they aren't perfect. I need to work on that skill some.
This notes booklet should be helpful to students.
Rational Exponents Booklet Notes Pages 1 and 8 by Beth Ferguson
In each of these lessons I am highlighting three initiatives at our school, formative assessment, technology, and writing.
The writing we will do is short ... to the point. We have done some lengthier explanatory writing. But the reflection and short explanations in this booklet fit the expectation ... and of course are worthwhile to student learning.
The use of technology is not transformative. I am using technology in its simplest forms ... for taking notes, for routine online practice, and for quizzing.
The formative assessments I have planned now are the individual stations and a wrap up activity at the end of each lesson. I'm looking back through the book on formative assessment for a strategy I might like to employ other than ticket out of the door or show me your whiteboard work.
