Teaching with Intention {Chapter One}

I don’t know about you, but I believe that God puts certain things into your life at just the right time.  While reading Guided Math by Laney Sammons, she referenced the book Teaching with Intention by Debbie Miller and the “feeling of endless time” that Debbie discusses.  I felt so intrigued and just had to check out the book.  I downloaded a Kindle sample and read through the first couple of chapters.  I was instantly in love.  I think I fell in love so quickly because it was just what I needed as I moved from a special education position…

Guided Math {Chapter Eight}

I know I’m a newbie teacher but I feel that assessment has taken on a different meaning and purpose in the last decade of instruction.  When I was in elementary school, which was longer than just a decade ago, you worked on a given topic for a week or two and then took a chapter test.  Nowadays, assessment is an ongoing process in which we as teachers are always provided with information to guide our instruction.  I don’t know about you but I think that’s a change for the better. Before you can begin to assess students on their learning…
