Writing about the things I haven't done yet this summer was motivating. Today I worked on lesson plans for our unit on systems of equations. I plan to use Cornell Notes to guide instruction so I focused my energy on those. I also found/adapted problem solving for each of the four lessons - solve by graphing, substitution, elimination, and systems of inequalities.
Here are the Cornell outlines for each day:
Day 1 Solving Systems of Equations by Graphing
For my units I am creating 4 documents: a warm-up, a set of notes, a group problem to solve, and a homework set. I'm feeling pretty good about the first two units. They still need polishing ... but getting closer! Hopefully with this basic planning done, I can spend some quality time on daily assessments - short, efficient - with time to write meaningful feedback!
