My students need Chromebooks to work with teams on problems found on the internet and with graphing, as well.
Our school and community faced something that we never thought we would--devastating fires. In October of this school year, much of our city of Santa Rosa was destroyed by fires. It impacted our students, our families, our entire city and surrounding communities. We had many students and staff lose their homes due to the fires. Many students and staff were evacuated, some for two weeks or longer. Our school and all schools in our district were closed for 3 weeks. So many have lost so much. Our students and staff donated to help out in the relief efforts. Our students and staff have been through a lot this year, but together, we will rise.
Our math classes use CPM (College Preparatory Mathematics) which allows students to work together as a team while still completing individual work.
While working with a team, there are team jobs--Facilitators, Resource Managers, Task Managers, and Reporter/Recorders. We are trying to get them ready for jobs in the real-world and learn how to work with others.
We are going to be using Chromebooks to connect to the internet in order to work on problems from our CPM books online. We are also going to work on problems from programs that have amazing, real-world situations but can only do so by using the internet. There are some cool graphing problems that we can work on, too.
Now more than ever, it is important to focus on team work and build community in our classroom, especially after all we have been through together.
We lost three weeks of instruction. Having the Chromebooks will help our students get back on track and better prepare them with our state testing, as well (which is all online).
