Great tip

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Great tip by
@Backup_Uganda

You want to reward your students for something they control, like completing their task, not for something that would not be under their control, like “being smart”, which would make them afraid to say something as it may turn out that they may no longer be smart.

How to teach graphs

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Not specific to students with dyscalculia but here is a good way to work on student’s understanding of graphs and data analysis:

The Slow Reveal Graph (#slowrevealgraph) is an instructional routine that promotes sensemaking about data.  This highly engaging routine uses scaffolded visuals and discourse to help students make sense of data. As more and more of the graph is revealed, students refine their interpretation and construct meaning, often in surprising ways. This routine increases access for students without sacrificing rigor or engagement.
