Teachers Can Learn Too

As an educator I am fully aware of the need for learning newteaching strategies to keep pace with the best practices in research.  Teachers and administration that are proactive in setting aside time and effort to grow professionally are best equipped to educate students effectively.

The subject of math is one area in which strategies for teaching are constantly evolving. Research in this area suggests that student interactive activities help students to build bridges of knowledge that can be connected with prior and new knowledge.

Grouws and Cebulla (2000), state students can improve achievement levels when they are given authentic opportunities to discover new knowledge through practice. By implementing and using programs such as Motivation Math students are able to develop such skills in the classroom. Using resources such as the ones found at mentoringminds.com will enable you to build your professional development skills, and become the best educator possible
