The Classroom Chef

The best lesson is like a fine meal, and you are the Classroom Chef. Unfortunately, when teaching feels hard it seems impossible to get every item on your to-do list, the tendency is to rely upon fast food. The Classroom Chef shares secret recipes, ingredients, and tips for serving up lessons that engage students and help them "get" math, however, these strategies can be applied to all content areas. You can use these ideas and methods as-is, or better yet, tweak them and create your own enticing educational meals. The message the authors want to convey is that, with imagination and preparation, every teacher can be a Classroom Chef. Participants will receive a copy of the book “The Classroom Chef” by John Stevens & Matt Vaudrey to complete this study. Join the book study through ODPA Express
