Time to play blog-post catchup now that my summer server migration woes are finally mostly resolved!
This year I’m teaching full-time at an ‘Integrated Arts’ high school, covering Math classes from grades 10-12 as well as a Science 9 (later) and Photography 11 / 12.
I GET TO MAKE MATH ARTSY ANY TIME I WANT
*insert happy dance gif*
I’m going to try to make this semester a more frequently-blogging one. I’m diving headlong into the new BC math curriculum drafts, which means an increased focus on what the docs refer to as “competencies”. I’m restructuring my SBG approach around this, adding in ranked SBG goals as borrowed from Frank Noschese, teaching Foundations of Math 12 for the first time as a combined class with PreCalc 12 … uh yeah writing this all down reminds me *why* I’ve been a bit overwhelmed!
Fortunately, the students are great, the staff and admin are great, the view out my classroom window is great … yep things are pretty great.
Now, back to whatever else I need to get prepped next! Check back later for more!
