This Week on October 11-15

This week on BrokenAirplane:

  • Reflected on my life and what made it interesting and exciting. Lots of lessons learned along the way. I had no idea how popular it would be and people have written in asking for more detail in some of the stories.
  • Looked at a successful math project called the Slope Art Project. This project provides feedback so the student teaches themselves the concept of slope as well as reinforcing algebraic manipulation. Most importantly it provides a way for students to be creative while learning an important concept.

  • Discussed some ideas on how to enhance your classroom culture. With so much concern about bulling, it is important to provide a safe place for your students to be and learn. Additionally, we can help create a positive culture about our curriculum and encourage people to feel comfortable helping and sharing.
