I flipped the introduction of linear functions with a brief video - my plan is to keep them under 5 minutes - but that they'll take 10 minutes to watch as they take notes (Crystal Kirch's WSQ idea sticks in my head). I hope to join in on her Webinar next week, but it'll be tough to do on home time.
So the reactions to the video lesson were good, but I was disappointed in my classroom follow-up on it. The system needs some minor tweaking (with a bulldozer!) I have to remember that I can still use humour in my videos... who am I to deprive the kids of their daily craving of teacher jokes?
Got a bit of a boost watching a few Ken Robinson talks tonight.
