My biggest takeaway is that there are so many harmful practices that create negative connotations when it comes to math. The practices with regards to achievement based grouping are outdated and research shows us that they should be totally eradicated. I am surprised that this still occurs anywhere.
I wonder how we shift the students’ and parents’ mindsets to where any assessment can allow for continued growth, how students can want to keep working towards mastery even when their current grade isn’t what they hoped.
