How I Use It
I use it in my room every day. It is a part of my interventions for my lower students as well as an enrichment for my advanced students. The students must keep a binder that contains journal pages that show their work and explanations for mistakes. I require 1 hour on TTM each week (other teachers in my building require one lesson each week). I grade based on time complete, as well as journal pages and average post-quiz score. The class chose to create a class goal working toward a pizza party, but in the beginning of the year, they were far more interested in their avatars than the class goal.
My Take
I am able to create pathways based on what we are currently working on, or topics I have previously taught that some are still struggling with. One thing I really like about the program is that students work at their own pace and the pathways can be customized to their individual needs. If they do not pass a lesson, they can be given interventions automatically that take them to a simpler lesson on the same topic and then build back up. The biggest reason I love this program, is that I can use it to challenge my advanced kids. I can assign them a pathway that has much more difficult topics or even include some seventh grade lessons to prepare them to be in advanced math next year.
