Hi teachers, I'm currently really struggling with helping my students make *meaning* from the things we do in class. I've been using Sarah Brown Wessing's paint bucket standards (CCSS that are "skinnied" to be more accessible and understandable), but I feel like there's still a disconnect with my students. Even when I go over the objectives and standards for the day, there's a passivity to it that lends itself to forgetting. When that happens, the meaning is lost! I've thought about having them write the objective at the top of their assignment and then having them answer at the end of the day how we addressed it-- What do you guys do? Any ideas? Thanks!
