    I love that you acknowledged how hard it is for new teachers to see the entire curriculum and how it will play out as a whole for step one. I really want to try to interleave assessments and I love calling them “mastery check ins.” Committing to this once a week, and not dedicating an entire day for review or study guides will free up space and still give meaningful days for students to work on. I will commit to implementing this from the first semester so that students are used to it from the get-go and see how it goes.

    I still have questions on re-assessing or allowing students to re-test standards that they do not do well in. Standard-based grading is something I’d like to implement, but I feel that I’d need support from a content team. I’m afraid to attempt it on my own as a new teacher.
