Conquering the Hundred Chart - Math Coach's Corner

Conquering the Hundred Chart - Math Coach's Corner | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
Mathematics is all about patterns. Some describe mathematics as the science of patterns, and the ability to understand patterns is described as a key concept in NCTM‘s algebra standard.

8 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Calling Out Kids for Their Bad Behavior - Brilliant or Insane

8 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Calling Out Kids for Their Bad Behavior - Brilliant or Insane | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
If a kid has been pushed to a point where she’s acting out in order to get negative attention, the problem is far bigger than you. You know that, right? I didn’t when I was a young teacher, but when this reality dawned on me, it was a game changer. Realizing that it wasn’t about me gave me enough space to breath a bit before I reacted.

It’s not about you either, I’ll bet. If it is, it might say something about how much the kid who is making you crazy cares about you.

Sometimes, they act out to get your attention.

Sometimes, it’s the only way they know.

Sometimes, admitting what they really think or feel or need requires a level of vulnerability they just aren’t able to conjure.

So, don’t call students out in front of other people. Don’t point out their errors, don’t name their flaws, and by all means, don’t cut them down with your sarcasm. Try to get to the root of the problem, instead. Try asking yourself a few questions.
