Looking for a way to increase your students’ written communication and critical thinking skills?
Try math journaling! Math journals are a great assessment tool for evaluating your students’ understanding of a specific skill or concept. They also strengthen your students’ writing and communication skills within the context of a mathematical situation or problem. In addition, regular use of math journals will allow you to evaluate your students’ progress over time and provide you with an excellent portfolio of student work for ARD meetings or parent conferences.
This pack presents a scoring rubric that can be used to evaluate your students’ work. In addition, I have provided some general guidelines and work samples to help you implement math journals in your classroom. The topics include:
• where to find journal tasks
• how to assign a journal task
• introducing the journal rubric
• components of the rubric
• scoring the rubric
• reporting the score
• communicating with parents
I hope this pack helps to increase your students’ communication and critical thinking skills!- The Routty Math Teacher
