I have been most fortunate this year to be involved with a project done through ISV (Independent Schools of Victoria) and funded by AGQTP (Australian Government Quality Teaching Program). It was led by Ron Ritchhart and supported by Julie Landvogt.
Through the participants’ Stories of Learning, we have all reflected on our practice and done some action research in order to focus on the question: “Who are our students becoming as thinkers and learners as a result of being in our classes?” We then wrote about our reflections.
All the stories will be published on a website that Ron Ritchhart has set up here. Mine turned out to be a bit of an opus, reflecting on how my approach to the teaching of mathematics has changed over the years. There are many great stories here, those of students’ learning and of teachers’ learning. Not all of them relate to mathematics.
If you would like to provide some feedback on my story, I would be pleased to receive it.
Enjoy the journeys.
