Instagram Project: Tell Your Story

I used Instagram to document stories of my students and classroom.

  1. The calm before the storm (aka midterm exam) #edss530ig
  2. My students had midterms this day which marked their grades for the first quarter and their kick off to Spring Break!
  3. Link crew made our students good luck notes for their midterms #edss530ig

  4. Link crew made all our Integrate I students "good luck" notes to view before their midterm in our class. It really brightened some of their mornings and helped them relax a bit going into the exam.
  5. Asked my students to give me feedback on the Midterm Review game. Never thought something I did would be described as "dope" #edss530ig

  6. The best thing I think I've done this semester was ask my students for feedback at the conclusion of a midterm game. The picture I showed is one that really made me smile but besides this one, I got some really valuable feedback on ways I can improve the game and what exactly the students liked about it. I will definitely be asked for students feedback more often. Why just work off my perspective when I have the opportunity to work off 38 other perspectives?
  7. Midterm Review game today! #edss530ig

  8. Orginally, I was just going to give my students a review packet to work on for the period but that just seemed so boring and not the least bit engaging. We borrowed this poster for next door and created questions the morning of in hopes of making review more engaging and fun.
  9. Excellent example on the differences of explicit and recursive equations! #edss530ig

  10. I think it's very important that students practice listening, reading, writing and speaking in every lesson. I don't believe the answer is the answer, rather- the explanation is the answer. This students communicated very well (through writing) the differences between explicit and recursive equation. He clearly demonstrated a deeper level of understanding of the material.
  11. The kids are really into writing jokes on the board to start our day off #edss530ig

  12. We always have a daily quote on the board. A few weeks ago, a student started writing a daily joke on the board at the beginning of each class. And then it just took off. This day, everyone wanted to put jokes up. I think it's a great way to start class off on a positive and fun note.
  13. What better way to celebrate Pi day than with your math methods team? #edss530ig @csusmedu
    What better way to celebrate Pi day than with your math methods team? #edss530ig @csusmedu
  14. It was Pi day and we had a math methods meeting this day. I mean, is there a more appropriate way to spend Pi day than with a bunch of amazing math teachers?
  15. Students comparing the difference of arithmetic and geometric sequences. #edss530ig
    Students comparing the difference of arithmetic and geometric sequences. #edss530ig
  16. The students were working on the differences between explcit and recursive equations and we started a list up at the front of the room for the students to add to as they thought of more and more differences and similarities.
  17. My student conducting baroque. Did you know that baroque boosts brain power? #edss530ig
    My student conducting baroque. Did you know that baroque boosts brain power? #edss530ig
  18. I read an article that said baroque boosted brain power. We tried it out in class during class work and one of my students started pretending to conduct the music. I think it worked effectively for a little bit, but then came, "can we play party in the USA?"
  19. A student's awesome work on explicit and recursive formulas for arithmetic sequences #edss530ig
    A student's awesome work on explicit and recursive formulas for arithmetic sequences #edss530ig
  20. This student (all on their own) made a table of different patterns and analyzed what the recursive and explicit rules were in order to prepare for our quiz. Very impressive!
  21. My studious students working on function notation #edss530ig
    My studious students working on function notation #edss530ig
  22. My students were hard at work with the "busy" noise of math talk while analyzing a warm-up dealing with function notation.
  23. Line perspectives #edss530ig #mondays

  24. Line perspectives of my shadow, the railing's shadow and the tile pattern. Could we make some calculations with this image?
