Do you believe a child should be taught to mastery? I do.
When I teach mathematics, I take every student’s understanding seriously. That’s why I do many of my assessments using diagnostic sessions where I watch the student solve the problems and notice HOW he/she is approaching it. We’re made in the image of God, and His characteristics are what we use to excel at whatever He has placed on our plates. In class we foster respect, encouragement, and a can-do energy.
Curiosity is a contagious attitude. Kids want to get under what’s the concept in each lesson because it becomes a feeling in the air – we’ve got to find the solutions and we do so with energy!
The classes are laid out into 27 weeks – three nine-week trimesters in hybrid format. Each week will include a minimum of two lessons. One will be live online and there will be at least one interactive lesson, taught by me. These interactive lessons include a lecture from me complete with embedded activities with accountability. There will be class group projects and games such as a whodunnit where the learners have to solve problems with the class.
Text book is not required. I draw all materials from a combination of my own problems sets and games to a combination of materials available online and approved for sharing.
