What Makes a Good Resource

What makes a good classroom resource?: Changes in my classroom

Classroom resources alone cannot guarantee effective learning and teaching. But they do have the potential to trigger new approaches and behaviours – i.e. changes in our classroom.  In this way good resources can provide a great source of professional development.

The activities have been written and devised by real teachers determined to find better ways of teaching mathematical ideas and topics.

You will find everything you need to teach the lesson and you will also get some insight into what the teacher wanted to achieve, how it went in practice and, often, an insight into a pedagogical issue and an opportunity to engage in some professional thinking yourself.

Try some of the lessons that catch your eye and reflect on what it made you think about. For a variety of ways that you might use the resources in this collection see the Using the material section.

Do you find this suite of resources helpful?
Are the short case studies written by teachers describing how they used them in their classroom helpful?
How are you using these?

We would be very interested in receiving details about your favourite resource If you were able to write about it in the style of the activities offered in this micro-site, we would love to see it and consider adding it to the bank of resources here for others to use. I am sure there are some fantastic ideas out there - it would be great to share them.
