Time Pressure, Mistakes, and Hand Raising


Since early in my teaching, reducing anxiety in my classroom has been a huge priority. It’s why I flipped my classroom. A year into flipping my math class, I wrote this post: Teaching with Compassion. Why I ‘Flip’. In that post, I say: Let’s rewind to my 2009 AP Calculus class, the year before I started my ‘flipped’ journey. In the last couple years, I have become really invested in using Pear Deck in my classroom. Pencils down, time’s up.
