Since I last wrote here, I’ve moved to a large urban public school district in the metro-Atlanta area. My school, Clarkston High, has a very diverse population, including many refugees. While many details of my teaching day have changed, the biggest impact has been the Promethean board in my classroom.
To be sure, classes that are twice the size of those I taught at Chrysalis is a little change. As is the diversity of the population. Not to mention that I work with a collaborative special education teacher 2/3 of my day. But I keep coming back to using that Promethean board in the best way possible.
In the five days we’ve been in school, I already realize I’m using the board as a plain old LCD projector. I’m not the only math teacher wondering how to use the Promethean for all it can offer.
Meanwhile, I’m off to lesson plan. Wish me luck!
