As I reflect upon the school year and past month of testing many questions come to mind as to how I can make improvements for the following school year. Of all the barriers to learning I have observed in my classes the lack of student engagement or "buy in" has been most prevalent.
How do I engage my students in implementing mathematical practices?
How do I have my students own the learning targets set before them daily?
How to I encourage students to take risk and persevere when being assessed formatively and summatively without fear of a negative outcome?
These questions will serve as a starting point in planning for the upcoming school year.
