Yes… I am a math teacher. However, students must be able to communicate when using numbers. Since reading and writing are important elements of communication, I should give students the opportunity to use these skills in my classroom; especially now high stake assessments in math are less computation and more application and performance-based.
So, I will always talk about writing and reading in addition to math activites on my blog. I ran into this really cool website that maybe more geared to middle schoolers.
With this website, I would use it to challenge my students to create a NEW super hero and write a story, word problem, or narrative chain involving their creation!
If you have any ideas on how to use this website in the classroom, please let me know!
