2nd Semester Commitment Form
Most of this form is optional. I want to begin this semester by reviewing my intentions and my responsibilities for the class. I also want to provide you the opportunity to make a statement about your responsibilities, if you choose to do so.
In no way am I sharing this to insinuate anyone is immature. I want you to know that I take the responsibility to teach UNTIL YOU LEARN IT, very seriously.
This is fictional, but I don't want this to be you! I won't let it happen in my class.
I submit to do a better job of monitoring your learning and providing you what you need to succeed in my room this semester.
You have more knowledge in your pocket (cell phone) than I could ever give you. I promise to help empower you to become the best learner you can be. Once again, that means that my classroom and my role will likely be different from what you are used to. We don't live in the world I grew up in, this world requires a change.
I don't want you to just learn math in here. I want you to learn how to learn anything!
Success doesn't come from doing things that are comfortable and easy. I promise to step out of my comfort zone in order to help you succeed.
I hope you know that I relentlessly search for ways to make this class exciting, engaging, and worth it!
I challenge you to embrace the struggle. What are you going to do when things get difficult?
I understand that one size does not fit all when it comes to learning math. I try very hard to offer you choices when it comes to pace, due dates, and the practice opportunities. I want to do a better job this semester of empowering you to be more aware of your progress towards specific learning goals. I feel there were times last semester when many students did not know how far or how close they were to knowing exactly what they were supposed to know.
The image below is likely the reason for the poor performance during the semester exam. I will do better at providing more opportunities for you to practice and apply the knowledge that you have already mastered. Our tests may be a little longer and you will be required to use the skills and concepts from the first semester. You can do it!
If you read through the images above, you have a glimpse of the commitment that I'm prepared to make this semester. What commitment are you prepared to make? How are you going to pursue greatness this semester? How will the results be different than they were last semester?
