In the last few weeks, I’ve seen a ton of new ideas from conferences and classes that I’ve taught. I’ve been meaning to reflect more about what I’ve been seeing, hearing, and thinking about. I think over break I will have more time to dissect my experiences over the last few weeks. In a short outline, I’ve been thinking about:
-Is a students’ social environment too much for even the best teachers to overcome? (Think Mr. M and his plan for a boarding school)
-Big picture connection between math, science, and the human condition (Think textbook I received at Asilomar conference)
Anyway, I have a lot more to catch up on. I think even this little bit is a good start.
