    I am very excited to delve deeper into Hattie’s Visible Learning in Mathematics. Bob Jenkins and I co-teach the 4-graduate course, UMF Certificate in Mathematics Leadership Program. Hattie’s book fits into our 3rd course - Mathematics Pedagogical Knowledge. The Discuss in this book study will help us add mathematics educators voices and experiences with Visible Learning throughout the State into this course.


    Hope you all had a lot of turkey and enjoyed your break.

    Hi Everyone,


    I am excited to see that this book is of interest to ATOMIM members.  You may see that I am one of the co-authors.  I am interested to know what your thoughts and questions are about this book and how Hattie's work can positively impact our instruction in mathematics.  I am also very interested to get your take on how his work supports the Effective Teaching Practices from Principles to Actions (and perhaps in some cases how it may conflict with our beliefs!)  Can't wait to get started!


    I am now retired (well somewhat!)  but my teaching was 28 years teaching mathematics in grades 4 - 8  (mostly 5 -6) and working as a K-8 mathematics specialist in my schools.  I then worked in directing a Professional Development Center at John Carroll University in Cleveland, Ohio where I planned and worked with other awesome people to facilitate K-12 PD for teachers in NE Ohio.

    Greetings! My name is Becky Tapley and I teach grades 3-8 math at the Brooklin School. I'm the only math teacher at those grade levels in the school, so I'm thrilled to connect with other educators. Not to mention having the chance to discuss the excellent topic of visible learning! 


    Time to go read!

    Hello-

    As you can see, my name is Ann Luginbuhl. I teach at Charlotte Elementary School in Charlotte. I teach the older students, the pupils in grades 6,7 and 8. Self contained. This means I am teaching all subjects- except gym, health, art and music. There are eleven students in my classroom. I teach three math groups every day. The great thing about this is that my students can be exposed to a wide variety of concepts across multiple levels.

    I am in this class to combat the attitude among my students that math is a series of formulas that you apply to specific math problems to get answers. I want to get them to see math as a toolbox that is used to solve all kinds of problems. Each new skill is simply a new tool to apply to all kinds problems.

    I met with a group in Machias and got some great ideas to get started. I am looking forward to sharing and learning.

    My name is Kim Schroeter. I recently retired as a Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment. This fall I joined the Maine Department of Education school improvement team, as a mathematics coach. I'm looking forward to dig deeper with the content of this book with you all.

    My name is Julie Lefebvre and I teach 7th and 8th grade math at Mahoney Middle School in South Portland.


    I signed up for this class because I have enjoyed previous ATOMIM professional development opportunities and am looking forward to learning with fellow math lovers! :-)

    Hi all!


    I'm Michael Hayashida, a math teacher over at Poland Regional High School. So fun to see who else is on here. (Hi, Pam and Becky!) And goodness, we have a co-author - that is fantastic! Glad to have you here, Linda. Um, I'm a little bit forgetting what the prompt was that I'm supposed to answer. But I've always subscribed to the theory that teaching can be taught - that there's no such thing as "teaching ability - you either have it or you don't". And then what falls out of that is, therefore, there must be best practices anyone can learn. And wouldn't I love to know what those best practices are! Looking forward to the learning....

    Hi, All.  I teach Geometry and a new class, Geometry, Statistics and Trig, at Cape Elizabeth High School.  I want to learn more about optimizing learning strategies from "Visible Learning" and peer feedback.  I could just read the book myself but I prefer hearing from other teachers out in the field at the same time.

    Thanks in advance for your participation.
