Whiteboard Paint for Group Work
My students need dry erase paint for their desks to allow them to collaborate and solve multi-step math problems together.
I want my students to become curious problem solvers, to not be afraid of trying something new.
I teach at a 6-12 all girls, public school in New York City; our students represent the many cultures that make up our city.
The majority of our students fall below the poverty line and are often the first in their families to graduate from high school.
The students will use the dry erase paint on the desk to collaborate on problems in math class. This will help to make the collaborate process easier by providing a larger work space where all the students can write at the same time. This will also provide a more transparent way to show work and allow students to provide feedback to each other.
The students will hopefully feel more comfortable sharing their thoughts and approaches to new problems.
Each student can share ownership in the problem and through using different colored markers can easily be identified in the work.
