I have started documenting my first 'focused' TAI or Teaching as Inquiry in Maths. The cyclical process is making me stop and think critically about myself as a classroom teacher (the WITFM or...what's in it for Me...) and more importantly those students of whom my Inquiry is focused on and I work alongside. I absolutely love the professional learning that results from this practice.
FIVE Modelling Book Tips:
1. Keep a toolkit of pens, coloured pens, ruler, highlighters, pencils, dictionary and thesaurus handy.
2. Write up the WALT well ahead of time and have additional information ready.
3. It's a modelling book so errors or the modelling of errors are acceptable.
4. Ask for samples of work from students to include in the book.
5. Keep the modelling book up to date and encourage students to refer to it often.
