    Observe or record a mathematics lesson. Use the "Teacher and student actions" chart (p. 24) to evaluate how the lesson applies to the Mathematical Teaching Practice Implement tasks that promote reasoning and problem solving. What evidence do you see of the teacher and student actions listed in the chart? Where do you see missed opportunities for these teacher and student actions? Give specific examples of evidence of this Mathematics Teaching Practice and ways to enhance the practice in future lessons.

    Hello and welcome! Please take this opportunity to check out the forum and introduce yourself to the group. What do you hope to learn? What do you hope to contribute?


    I'll start. My name is Pam Rawson and I teach at Baxter Academy in Portland. I'm really hoping to be able to participate in the book study this year. I'm really looking forward to reading the book and thinking deeply about my classroom practice. I hope that I can offer intelligent contributions to the group and keep up with the work.


    Each new prompt will have two options, A and B. Take your pick for which prompt you'd like to respond to, or respond to both. And each other.

    RSS is an acronym for Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication. It is the technology that allows Internet users to subscribe or "pull" information from various web sites and web services into an aggregator, a page or software that is specifically designed to pull together information.


    Why use a reader? Find out with this short YouTube video.

    Which reader to use? Feedly appears to be the most used of the mobile readers. Shawn uses it on his iPad to organize all his feeds.


    If you subscribe to these posts on your own reader, then the new posts will show up without your having to remember to come and find them.

    "Feedly" appears to be the most used of the "readers."  I was able to subscribe to it on my computer and am going to try out the app on my iPad (where I do most of my reading).

    Reflecting on our learning...
    1. How did this learning experience connect to your school’s mission and vision statements?
    2. How did this learning experience connect to your own personal growth plans Why was this learning experience important to you as an educator?  How will it change who you are as a teacher?
    3. How has this learning experience impacted the work you do with the colleagues you collaborate with or the students in your classroom?
    4. How do you intend to build on this learning experience?  Will there be additional studies involved?  Are you planning new lessons as a result of what you have learned?  Can you share what you’ve learned with other teachers on our faculty?
