Reflection: Learning Communities Culture Building with the Math Practice Standards - Section 4: Math Practice Standards Homework Task


What a connected world that we now live in!  It is about time that education caught up to this movement.  In reading the comments on this lesson, Barabra offered some great insights that I am going to try in my own classroom.  I like the idea of exit slips (especially early in the year) that tie into both the content standards, and the math practice standards.  I think that this is an excellent way to show your students that you are going to keep the accountable for the practice standards and ask them to reflect on their learning and personal growth. 


In constructing these exit slips, or any similar activities for that matter, it is important to keep in mind that the practice standards are not disconnected from the content standards.  It would be relatively easy to accidently convey this message to the students through poorly constructed questions.  In my estimation, the math practices are best probed out of the students through reflection on their learning.
