How Can We Make Math More Engaging and Accessible to Students? is the topic of my newest BAM! Radio Show.
Dr. Anne M. Collins and Sue O’Connell are my guests in this ten minute conversation. You’ll be able to read their written responses in my weekend post at Education Week Teacher.
This week’s question-of-the-week is: “What strategies help math facts stick besides the old “drill the skill” and, if someone is not proficient at addition facts, can learning multiplication help or confuse?”
You can leave your responses there or here in the comments…
I’ve written a lot about the importance of teachers being able to apologize to students when we mess-up (see The Best Resources On The Importance Of Saying “I’m Sorry”).
Here’s another reason why it’s important. It’s — more or less — a transcript of a story that my colleague and co-author Katie Hull had this morning:
I want to tell you about something that Joan (a student that we have in common — not her real name) told me yesterday. She came to me and said “You and Mr. Ferlazzo write books together, right?”
I told her, “Yes.”
She said, “It’s about how to be a good teacher, right?”
I told that it was, more or less.
Joan then said, “I can tell – you both teach the same way. If Mr. Ferlazzo gets upset at the wrong student for talking, he apologizes. You do, too. Most teachers never say they’re sorry about anything!”
