Start your year creating clear classroom discussions, students willing to take risks, and open-ended problem solving (for all levels K-12). Set students up to believe in themselves with a growth mindset

Start your year with the Week of Inspirational Math (1 or 2). Created by Jo Boaler and her students from Stanford University. You will need to create a free account to access the videos, lesson plans, and materials. 

Talking with Parents about the Common Core

At ATOMIM we believe that each and every student deserves the opportunity to be a successful learner.  Teachers and parents can work together for this common purpose. Currently, 85% of teachers say that parents misunderstand the Common Core State Standards. A video  produced by Thomas Fordham Institute, streamed live on July 14, 2016, shows a lesson teaching multiple methods for problem solving using addition and subtraction. It also shows how to encourage students to make choices to use methods to fit specific situations, rather than using multiple methods for the sake of extra work. Finally, several suggestions to communicate with parents, school boards and other stake holders are discussed.
