Aug 23, 2010@ 11:02:23These are valuable tasks that will help students. They also make me think about distinguishing tasks that call for creating content ABOUT already-created math, and tasks that call for creating MATH content. Bloom’s Taxonomy papers I have seen so far have not talked about it like this, but there are a lot of them, so it is probably described somewhere.

Aug 27, 2010@ 15:46:45I like this idea about creating poems about triangles. I think any time we can teach topics across different curricular areas it makes it more memorable for the students. To alleviate some anxiety over this for the students I would show the students different types of poems and how to create them prior to this task. I would also read the children some poems to they can get a feel for how poems should sound. At the end of the lesson, you could also have a showcase of the poems and have the students read them to friends, family, other teachers etc to get them excited about their work!
