Today is the day. Today I began mapping out what I currently teach in Algebra 1 and Algebra 2: objectives covered, examples used, projects taught, etc. Tomorrow I plan to start replacing current lessons I teach with projects and/or problem-based lessons. My goal for this summer is to transition my curriculum to include at least 2 projects or experiments per chapter (chapters 1-12 in both Algebra 1 and 2). I know it's not a complete transition to teaching from problem-based method but I think it's a good start. That's 24 quality problems/experiments/projects I need over the next 2 months. Ready? Go!
