Making Thinking Visible: The Power of Voice

This past summer I had the privilege of sharing a three minute showcase with my Global ADE colleagues on Making Thinking Visible: The Power of Voice.  Here is a copy of that presentation.

Number and Number Set Task Cards

For the upcoming school year I have created some number task cards.  Most are open ended and can be modified to meet my students' individual needs.  My students have choice as to which job to do as long as they are working on our overall class learning intention at the time.  Of course some jobs are limited by equipment and so we find ways to make that work too.  I am also open to their ideas, and I utilize opportunities for real world math as often as I can.  If you would like to download some or all of these task cards you can find them here.

I included this page as well. I find different students like to choose different apps to add their voice to their work.  In my classroom this is really important as it helps make their thinking visible.
