160 Math Project Ideas Offer Examples of Project-Based Learning

160 Math Project Ideas Offer Examples of Project-Based Learning | The Art of Teaching | Scoop.it

by Heidi Reina

 

"These 160 math projects, from schools across the US, provide overviews, activities, assessment rubrics, work product descriptions, and ideas for reflection. Although they vary in format, you can adjust them to your students' learning situation, curriculum demands, etc. Projects from Teach21 PBL (West Virginia Dept of Education), and Math Matters in Indiana are very detailed and provide excellent project-based learning lesson plan templates."

Beyond Worksheets, A True Expression of Student Learning

Beyond Worksheets, A True Expression of Student Learning | The Art of Teaching | Scoop.it
Possession of facts is not learning. What is an important skill is the ability to sift through abundant information, identify what is valid and meaningful, then use it to create meaning and express it. This is why student creation is so important in the new economy of information.

Ken Morrison's curator insight, November 18, 2014 2:46 PM

Ken's Key Takeaway: 
"Far beyond filling out answers on a worksheet, these assignments allow for individual talents and personality to shine through. While it’s unlikely that you have ever heard a person say, “that worksheet changed my life,” most people have an assignment from their childhood that they remember with pride because it was meaningful to them. More often than not, that memorable assignment was one that allowed them to build and create."

Can a  true expression of student learnig  be discovered through worksheets snad tests?  A quote from the post I find 'expressive': '' While it’s unlikely that you have ever heard a person say, “that worksheet changed my life,” most people have an assignment from their childhood that they remember with pride because it was meaningful to them. More often than not, that memorable assignment was one that allowed them to build and create.''

How Much Performance Pizzazz Does a Teacher Need to be Effective? - Mind/Shift

How Much Performance Pizzazz Does a Teacher Need to be Effective? - Mind/Shift | The Art of Teaching | Scoop.it
In other words, a basic element of a teacher’s job — the very way in which they impart information — may not be a part of their training.

Now, maybe that’s not a surprise to anyone who’s struggled to stay awake through a droning 90-minute lecture. But it raises a question: How much performance — how much pizzazz — does a teacher need?
