The Matrix-Planning Tool is a 1-stop reference for the busy mathematics educator. Use this premium tool with the FREE Meta-Cognitive Journal and planning will no longer be a chore. This tool provides everything you need at each stage of lesson design. You’ll find yourself completing objectives with engaging research based strategies. The planner is designed to guide you through the planning process using the bold lines as arrows to move you horizontally for a basic lesson or diagonally to the far corner for a more challenging lesson. Begin with a launch, choose from the list of strategies before moving to the investigation portion. Use the Bloom’s List of behaviors to match the activity to your student’s ability and stage of the lesson. Select individual, group, or whole class activities infusing mini meta-cognitive checks for understanding throughout the lesson. Don’t forget to complete the planner each week by filling in the reflection portion.
