My Project

Learning is about student engagement, making mistakes, and taking chances. I want my middle school math students to take risks, so I encourage them to solve problems on whiteboards to build their critical thinking skills. A key component to this is leveraging erasable and reusable surfaces so students aren’t afraid to make mistakes and have to start over on a new surface.

The book, Building Thinking Classrooms by Peter Liljedahl, is based on experiential learning, building on your mistakes, and working collaboratively.

In the thinking classroom, everyone learns together, talks it out together, and understands together, working problems out on a whiteboard or other non-permanent surfaces. I have the whiteboards, but am hoping to have enough supplies to get through a whole year of enriching math tasks with 12 groups of three students, 5 times a day, 5 days a week. Your support will help so many learn so much!

Thank you for your consideration!
