Teaching Math Through a Hero’s Journey Will Change Your Career

How is Joseph Campbell’s mythic structure of story related to teaching math? Jon shares how he and Kyle Pearce have change their teaching careers from a teaching math in traditional math lesson structure to following a hero’s journey model!

By teaching our math lessons in the format:

  1. Take up homework.
  2. Give definitions and notes.
  3. Show and complete examples.
  4. Give out homework.

We’re robbing students from attaching value to their learning when we follow the method above. Instead watch how Jon shows how we can flip math class to a hero’s journey model.
