Teacher to Teacher: Phenomenally Exciting Joint Mathematics-English Vocabulary Project
Cynthia Seidel, Julia McNamee
May 2005, Volume 10, Issue 9, Page 461
An extremely successful interdisciplinary project with mathematics and English. Eighth-grade students were grouped in teams of five and assigned a vocabulary word that has different meanings in mathematics and the real world. Each team had to prepare an entertaining one-minute presentation to teach both meanings of their vocabulary word. Worksheets are provided. Teacher to Teacher is a department written by teachers for other teachers. This department features implications for improving instruction aimed at ideas teachers can use in their own classrooms, schools, and communities. A Teacher to Teacher is a regular department of Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School.
