5 Left Side – Right Side Orientation Left side items are items from the teacher and text to be . . .LEARNABLE CONTENTNotes, taken in the format directed by Ms. PopeHandoutsGraphic organizersExample problems worked out with written “running” commentaryContent to go on a math foldableWork period inputWord Wall termsRight side items are the student’s . . .REFLECTIONSGuided practiceGraphic organizersFoldablesHomework assignmentCreative math memory hooksAcronyms to aid in memoryMath journal entriesPoems, raps, riddles, and math gamesWork Period output
6 Left Side Left is for learnable content! The left side “belongs” to Ms. Pope and the text.The left side has “testable” information.
7 Examples of Teacher Left Side Content Notes, taken in the format directed by Ms. PopeHandoutsGraphic organizersExample problems worked out with written “running” commentaryContent to go on a math foldable
8 Right Side The right is for “reflection.” The right side belongs to YOU!The right side is where you record your PROCESSING of the teacher-provided notes, handouts, etc. (i.e. of the left side items).
9 Examples of Student Right Side Work/Products Guided practiceGraphic organizersFoldablesHomework assignmentYour re-writing of notes into your own language and/or with illustrations
10 More Examples of Right Side Work/Products Math journal entries (e.g. about real-world math, about the assigned Internet math practice homework)Creative math memory hooksMental math models (e.g. a story about “good guys leaving” and “bad guys leaving” to explain pos/neg integer multiplication)
11 Extra Credit Right Side Work/Products NOTE: These are graded by detailed rubrics.math riddles (especially for geometry)student-created math games requiring math expertise (both to create and play the game; can involve dice, spinners, etc.)poems/raps to aid memory of concepts or algorithmsetc.
