INA Assessments – Island Numeracy Network

What if they were more assessment capable?” (Absolum et al., 2009) Years ago, the Island Numeracy Network wrote the Diagnostic Mathematics Assessment (DMA) which was used all over the province. Over the years, the assessment was updated to meet changing learning outcomes in BC Ministry Curriculum. The purpose of the assessment was to provide teachers in our province with an effective assessment of student content-knowledge. Our new assessment, the Island Numeracy Assessment, or INA, was developed to align numeracy assessment practices with current numeracy learning expectations of BC students. The design offers comprehensive, ongoing assessment of student thinking and learning.

Expressions With Arrays – Mathcurious. Last week we started with arrays and multiplication and I feel that there is more to be said and done regarding this topic.

Expressions With Arrays – Mathcurious

One of my favorite activities to do in class is to give students task cards with different arrays and ask them to write equations/expressions for them. In a previous post, we shared some simple array task-cards where the students had to write the expressions and practice the properties of multiplication.

Today I would like to share with you some more array task-cards, this time with the arrays placed in different shapes and arrangements like the ones below. The first group of cards (like the above) requires the students to write the expressions based on how they see the arrangement. For example, for the shape below students will write 5×9, 3x3x5. In the third group of cards, the students are asked to color or circle the arrangements based on a given equation or color the arrangement and write the equation themselves.

Why Does It Matter? How to Develop Culturally Responsive Teaching for Distance Learning - MindShift. Hammond distinguishes the differences between culturally responsive education, multicultural education and social justice education.

How to Develop Culturally Responsive Teaching for Distance Learning - MindShift

Each is important, but without a focus on building students’ brain power, they will experience learning loss. When it comes to distance learning, applying culturally responsive teaching requires “remixing” education by borrowing from the best practices in how kids learn (Montessori, project-based learning, etc.) in a way that repositions the student as the leader of his own learning. By giving students more agency, the idea is to disrupt old routines around teaching and learning that make the student dependent on the teacher for receiving knowledge. “It’s going to stretch us a little out of our own comfort zones, but it’s worth it in the long run if we can get students to continue to do that thinking,” said Hammond. She advises three strategies to help students gain that independence: 1. Antonio Vendramin. Sesame Street: Janelle Monae- Power of Yet. Carol Dweck - A Study on Praise and Mindsets.

21 Sensory Activities for Focus & Calm

Grumpy, frustrated, worried, bored, overwhelmed (insert adjective describing your child's mood here) home learners can all benefit from a sensory break to engage their senses, boost self-regulation, and shake things up a bit. Parents of home learners, and educators soon to welcome students back into the classroom, take note: all it takes is a little to create meaningful sensory experiences. Try one of the activities from the list below when your child becomes fidgety, disengaged, anxious, or overwhelmed. Even better, plan a handful of activities throughout the day, because an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure (and sensory activities can be a lot of fun for adults and children alike!).

Sure ... if you know how to use it. For those of us who remember a time before the internet, using Google for research might feel strange -- like being thrust from the cozy confines of a favorite library straight into the Wild West of the web. But in today’s world, it’s impossible to ignore Google Search as a legitimate tool for research. Most of us begin any simple quest for knowledge with a Google search. So it makes sense that more serious searches might start there, too. Pause & Think Online.

Seeing Through Watcher's Eyes. The thirty-two foot collaborative mural Through Watchers’ Eyes designed by tSouke member kQwa’st’not (Charlene George) is a teaching/learning tool exploring indigenous culture, teachings and the environment.

Through a nine-month collaborative process, this mural was painted at Spencer Middle School on the territory of the Lekwungen speaking peoples (Songhees and Esquimalt Nations). Through Watchers’ Eyes shares a complex and deep story seen through the eyes of Coast Salish SNA’WY’ALTH (practice and teaching) with the Wild Man and the Wild Woman. It invites voices and views that are noticeably absent in our present-day society, particularly when it comes to how we see nature and our place in it. Seeing Through Watchers’ Eyes – Between the Worlds is an online interactive learning tool that tells the story of the land where the mural lives.
