Rarely do I read a teaching book and say – this completely changed the way that I think about teaching.  More specifically, this book totally changed the way that I view mistakes in my math classroom.  The author of this book – Jo Boaler also does a lot of great work over at youcubed.org.  I’m excited to take her online PD through Stanford this summer to learn more about fostering a Growth Mindset in my students.

I’ve been called many things in my career as a teacher, most can’t be repeated here.  But once a colleague called me a “Classroom Management Ninja.”  I really liked that and I definitely took it as a compliment.  This book will help you become a Classroom Management Ninja as well.  I always give a copy to any new teachers or student teachers that I am mentoring.  If you need some advice on classroom management, you should get this book.

As my students finish up their Surface Area and Volume Playlists, I found myself searching for more hands on projects as an extension for those students who finished early.  I went to one of the best books I have for Projects and Performance Tasks.  This book has great performance based tasks on every topic.  Check out an example HERE.
