Sharing a few strategies that I am using often this year ...
1) Desmos Activities - since our Algebra 2 curriculum is all about functions, we analyze graphs often. Typically curriculum is set up to explore the graphs before exploring the applications. Building Desmos activities for the graphing units has been challenging for me ... and engaging for students. I also use the Desmos Polygraph activities and look forward to using Marbleslides!
2) BrainGenie - Class time is spent in delving as deeply into math concepts as we can. We don't use class time to practice skills very often. A colleague mentioned BrainGenie - and I love it! It provides the routine practice that students need with video support and immediate feedback! And it's free!
3) Partner Quizzes - One day our desks were seated in pairs and I was giving a quiz. I decided to let the quiz be a partner quiz. I was so impressed ... listening to students quietly working on problems together, questioning one another, coaching one another. I decided to give another one in the next unit. Obviously not all quizzes can be partner quizzes ... but there is definitely an upside to allowing students to work together even on quizzes.
I'm looking forward to collecting the tried and true reported in blogs this week!
