Had a pretty fun session with my Grade 8's exploring Linear Functions and Models through a menu board of sheets.
We started by doing a class problem, 'The Growing Cube', to explore the steps of working mathematically in practice and encourage group work and collaboration
Then it raised the question for me - how can I give constructive feedback and have some sort of record also. Yes, I could of just written ll my feedback on each sheet and taken some notes, but having a feedback form I thought might be useful to see patterns and a "one stop shop".
I produced a simple table, similar to a PMI to structure my feedback and ensure I am giving some balanced comments:
Then lightbulb moment - why, oh why didn't I think of this earlier?!?!?!….WWW EBI!! Such better language to use! It was too late or my class but not for my teaching colleague! Take 2 is much better! :D
