This is going to be a short blog post, but it comes with a request.
I was reminded today that there is nothing quite as powerful the department of meaningful student engagement as allowing students to set things on fire.
But I’m a science teacher these next two weeks and come fall, I’m a math teacher again. This begs the question: What opportunities are there to allow students to set things on fire meaningfully in a math classroom? (Think Geometry or Algebra II)
I need ideas people! Let me know what you got!
