Journey on- #blog format inspired by Mrs. Crystal Kirch at flippingwithkirch.blogspot.com
This morning I had my Algebra II. It went very well. The organization I am using, which is inspired by Mrs. Crystal Kirch's WSQ chart, helps a lot on keeping my students on track. With the assessment chart, my students can always refer back to the chart if they are not sure what to do in this class or what needs to be done. I truly think this kind of organization is a brilliant idea in a flipped classroom to keep students going on and on.
After lunch I had my Geometry, I find it challenging to control this class, not only because the size is larger, but also the "components" of this class. This section has more personality in it so it makes it harder to push them. A lot of times I feel like I am pushing the carts in the shopping mall. I keep referring my students back to the assessment charts- one after one. It seems like it never ends that students keep coming back to me. I wish my class can incorporate more higher thinking, but from time to time there exists a class that barely keeps itself on track as if it is a broken record.
