… and reading my Twitter feed. From Andrew Gael: https://thelearningkaleidoscope.files.wordpress.com/2016/04/students-with-disabilities-can-do-math-shareable.pdf
“Students with disabilities can do math.”
Amen ! HOwever, we also know that they don’t do so well in a lot of real classroom & life situations, where teachers don’t have the resources and/or training (and/or expectations) to facilitate developing those concepts — and to grow students’ metacognitive and emotional infrastructure so that it happens in imperfect situations.
Yes, I’m thinking the current soggy implosion at the work setting is a not-so-gentle boot to the backside to balance working with students here — putting single starfishies back in the water (“it makes a difference to that one!”) — with finding a way to fix whatever is stranding the starfishies (Seems Loren Eisely started that little story — at least this version has other people joining in so that “all the starfishes were saved” but nobody’s asking why they were stranded…) and getting better math resources out there.
Okay, 9:00. Back to making a Canvas quiz. That’s another story…
