I assigned an autobiography to my Accelerated Algebra 2 students and a few things stood out:

I will try NOT to do too much talking this year. Algebra 1 students had a different homework and theirs asked what they liked about math teachers. A lot of them said "patient".

So = less talking and more patience:

They also like teachers/math who are organized. I think I am pretty good at this:

This autobiography asked students to be creative. I thought it was interesting that that meant using acronyms:

And, a few said that the unit circle was scary. I told them, not when they see my pretty garland unit circle later in the year - they will love it!

Would you be willing to share a digital copy of your autobiography sheet? Thanks!

ReplyDeleteSure. It isn't my original. I don't remember where I found it. https://docs.google.com/a/hopkinton.k12.ma.us/file/d/0B18dVVpGcYUqV09mRm9ZV1VYczA/edit
