If you are not subscribed to comments on this blog, you missed an awesome comment from Linda McDonald, queen of VC in Katy, TX; creator of Math Marvels and other cool collaborative projects. Her comment was in response to a question about how to start your VC program.
Be a listener!
- Ask what about the critical target objectives based on testing data.
- Ask about areas of curriculum that teacher think are important but don’t seem to have time to teach.
- Ask which content students struggle understanding.
Help teachers build VC projects based on the answers above and you will have a “product you can sell.”
Do you ask teachers these questions? How do you follow-up? How do you help teachers see the connection between curriculum and potential content/projects/experiences?
