Year 1 Follow Up Day 4
Welcome to the Year 1 Follow Up Day 4 Review Module! During our first year, we worked with teacher-participants on ideas surrounding constructivist teaching methods (the basis of the Anchor Task teaching strategy), technology integration (iPads and apps), and integrating literacy strategies (interactive notebooks). Feel free to watch the videos below and read the linked article to get a better understanding of how we explored teaching a rigorous mathematical curriculum. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Joelle Lobos or Tony Alteparmakian.

The video below shows an example of an add-on video for the Youtube Anchor Task "Pool Dog" (video of the dog running around the pool). This video extends the video with a question that some students might not ask "How long would I have to swim in the pool in order for the dog to get their walk in for the day?" As you consider the skills you learned watching the tutorial, think about how you might use iMovie to create your own anchor task or to add on to an already existing one.
