Empowering and Engaging Students with Whiteboard Posters
Help me give my students these effective Large Dry-Eraseable Paper Posters to facilitate graphing. They will potentially improve student engagement, group collaboration, and time on-task because students enjoy being out of their seats using whiteboard pens.
I teach 7th and 8th grade mathematics at a K-8 school. I have 5 periods per day, two of which are advanced courses. One is actually a 9th grade math course for the advanced 8th graders. With that said, many of my students in the typical math class are struggling learners, below grade level. My goal is to raise student achievement so they are better prepared for next year.
My students are wonderful.
They stay on task most of the time and respect my expectations. They are well behaved and this makes my job even more pleasant.
These dry-eraseable paper posters will be used to get students out of their seats, into groups of 3 throughout the classroom, and collaborating on math problems involving graphing. Some examples include graphing linear equations, systems of linear equations, and practicing slope by drawing slope triangles.
My students need to be out of their seats throughout the lesson to maintain focus, engagement, and positive energy.
These posters will help enable this and will hopefully maximize learning. I will be more of a facilitator as students put their minds together. Also, this strategy allows the teacher to easily glance at student work almost in an instant. I can see what students are doing wrong and address it with the group.
