November Remainders

Hi again. It was a busy November. I spoke at the three NCTM regional conferences, keynoting two of them. That plus the Thanksgiving holiday, some family fun, some preschool volunteer work, and some forward progress on my dissertation has left blogging somewhere around eleventh place on the to-do list.

All of that makes your blogging more useful to me than ever. Please keep posting your interesting classroom anecdotes.

Here are all the blogs I subscribed to during November 2014:

I'm Dan and this is my blog. I'm a former high school math teacher and current head of teaching at Desmos. He / him. More here.


  1. Thanx Dan! I’m working on it! New post coming today! Slow and steady…

    I’ve had a lot of thoughts just trying to find time to share :)

  2. Also not sold on flipped classroom, but I’d like to see what happens when someone tries it from day one.

    I feel like the video-watched-by-only-one-person problem is what I’d run into. I’ve had flip enthusiasts swear to me the students _will_ watch the videos (even my students who tell me they’ve never done homework for any class, ever?), but I’ve had other tech-for-students things end up only get used by a handful.

  3. @Carlo, there are lots of flavors of flip, but I generally find flipped instruction to misunderstand the conditions that make lecture useful (when you experience a need for it) and interesting (when it incorporates and builds on your own thinking).
