The math journal is a powerful platform and resource for students to share their strategies and learning while giving them a voice in the math classroom. Writing about math can improve student success by allowing them time to think deeply about the content while making real-world connections and documenting their progress. Come and join this edWebinar to find out about the different components of a math journal, the purpose for each of the sections, how to organize it to best meet the needs of your learners, and why it is a vital piece in helping students to be active learners in math.

This edWebinar will be of interest to teachers of the kindergarten through middle school levels. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
