This year I've been part of a focus group on the Three-Part Math Lesson. Come on over to my blog to see what it's all about (it's probably very similar to what you're already doing in math class), and see how we did a three-part lesson for perimeter and area today.
I also had my students use sticky notes as an "exit slip" on our daily learning goals. LOVED how it turned out. Come on over to my blog to check out our day.
