This artifact is a hypothetical introduction letter for parents attending a back to school night. In it I introduce myself to the classroom community and explicitly lay out the class framework, specific to mathematics, by addressing “5 Big Concepts”. This refers to five concepts that the students will be learning throughout the year, how they will be supported in the classroom, and how they can be additionally encouraged and practiced at home.
