I have lesson 21 as a free trial if you want to try the format before purchasing. Make sure it is right for you and your class.
I made these PowerPoints for lessons 21-27 in module 3 for my class. Establish some learning guidelines and click through. Easy and much more fun!
It goes with the Engaged New York Program that my school is using for our math curriculum.
It has a Christmas theme. I use Peanut Gallery clip art with comics as brain breaks. It is broken down so that all you have to do is click the space or enter and then next question or model will pop up. The questions and answers are built in. Typically, you ask the question, the class will answer, you'll click, and the students will see if they were correct. It is "substitute friendly". Since it is in a student guided format, substitutes can just guide the students through the presentation. It is interactive and full of the same practices that the Engaged NY program has.
We use math notebooks and the class takes notes and does the activities from the slides. We were using dry erase boards. With my class, this became a issue because they dry out and when they hold their boards up, it would take forever to check them because the dry erase was faded. It was taking too much time to get through the lessons. Now we have math partners where they do the problem from the presentation and they have their partner check and circle anything that they miss.
Format: Do the question/problem, give them an appropriate time to work (usually 1 to 3 minutes), pass notebook to partner, check/circle anything wrong or missing, pass back, correct, move on.
I found this holds them more accountable than the dry erase boards. Some students were "waiting" until time was up and were not engaged. This engages everyone. The notebooks can be sent home so that the parents can understand the common core math better. Absent students can copy the "neatest writers" notes for their make up work. By the second day, the notebook method was efficient. The first day, I still had people trying to "wait" out the time. After awhile, they begrudgingly picked up their pace in order to not annoy their partner.
The time that you should do each section is in parenthesis. ie. (4) With the fluency, try to stick to that time. I have many problems up, but I don't always get through them all. The Concept Development is the most important part. Spend more time on that section.
