Learning More Than Math
The eighth-grade classes recently reviewed for a linear equations test. The pictures show a whiteboard review we did two days in preparation for the test. What struck me about the whiteboard reviews with these students is the kind willingness to help other students. Writing equations is what we are targeting to learn. These eighth-grade students are learning much more. Those that got it quicker communicated the math concept to another student. They displayed kindness, good work ethic, and respect as they did this. The student receiving the help experienced the kindness and learned to graciously accept the help and voice questions for clarification.
It warms my heart to see your students working to help everyone be successful!
