Passion Quilt Meme

Damian tagged me with this one a while ago.

Here are the rules, taken directly from his post,

Passion Quilt Meme Rules:

  1. Think about what you are passionate about teaching your students.
  2. Post a picture from a source like FlickrCC or Flickr Creative Commons or make/take your own that captures what YOU are most passionate about for kids to learn about…and give your picture a short title.
  3. Title your blog post “Meme: Passion Quilt” and link back to this blog entry.
  4. Include links to 5 folks in your professional learning network or whom you follow on Twitter/Pownce.


I liked this image for a few reasons. I want my students to be reflective learners. I want them to examine their own thinking and that of others. To compare solutions and processes for their mathematical work. I want them to reflect on their actions and choices too. I also chose this image because I like the patterns displayed. I want my students to recognize (and appreciate the beauty of) patterns.

I’m not sure how well I’ve been doing in actually bringing these passions to the classroom on a daily basis. That’s something on which I need to reflect.

I’m going to break one of the rules by not tagging anyone. Or tagging everyone. If you’re interested, consider yourself tagged.
