Week of Oct 12th-16th
HSE 21- Student Centered Approaches, Cognitive Curriculum, Fundamental Classroom Conditions, Transfer of learning
Let's just focus in on math for a moment. With the help of Jeanine and Kelly, they have showed us how to make math collaborative, challenging, differentiated, authentic, relevant, provide choice, hit prior knowledge, be rigorous and allow the transfer of learning through application- JUST TO NAME A FEW. Wowzers! That hits 8+ items on HSE21 model.
Let's Take BUMP for example-
Collaborative, speaking and listening skills, it can be differentiated ( add, sub, multiple operations), prior knowledge
Problem of the Day-
Challenging, relevant and real life, differentiated/choice ( by giving them three sets of numbers- pick your friendly numbers), rigorous, transfer of learning of an operation in a word problem. Then when you have students put up their answer and other students explain the thinking and process, we provide a non-threatening environment where students want to take on risk to learn!
Which number does not belong-
Challenging, prior knowledge, collaboration
Best practice math instruction includes many facets of HSE21.

Front Row Math and Reading... YES READING TOO
See what one of our colleagues has said:
"It's awesome! They take a quick diagnostic test then I can assign them articles from a bank that are automatically adjusted to their Lexile levels and it quizzes them on the article. They can use article to look up info. Super easy and they loved it!"
