A Message from the Administrators

Deer Park Jr./Sr. High School Families:

Each week we will highlight teaching and learning taking place in our academic classrooms. Below is a snapshot of the instruction that took place in Ally Stiller’s 8th grade mathematics class this week. We are hitting full stride in our Core Academic Classrooms. I am extremely proud of our staff and students for aiming high in our classrooms this week. We are off and running at DPHS. Hope everyone is having a great weekend with their family.

Life is good!

Classroom Highlight

Teaching and Learning is our priority 1 at Deer Park High School during the academic day. We came out of the blocks strong on our first day of school. Bob stopped in Ally Stiller’s 8th grade Mathematics class.The Clear Learning Goal for the instruction he observed was “Students can create squares using patterns using manipulatives.” Research based strategies used to make this learning come alive included group work, hands on learning, and investigating patterns with manipulatives. 

This lesson was crafted from Standard 8.EE.2. The Success Criterion to ensure students mastered the lesson was that students recorded their drawings on paper for Mrs. Stiller to be able to see what their thinking was for each of the squares their group created. This was a great activity to do the first week of school because students were looking at “math” through a different lens of solving a puzzle, rather than just looking at numbers and equations, which is likely what their misconception of math is at times. Hats off to Mrs. Stiller and her 8th grade students!!
