I am so happy I took this course! I was so frustrated with how my math class was set up last year and felt like I was just giving students information, having them memorize it, and then testing them on it. There was no real thinking involved, other than memorizing procedures. So I hope I will be able to change that. On the other hand, I am so overwhelmed at trying this, since I’m afraid I won’t be able to do it and my students will end up not even knowing the basic procedures. My school really believes in using block curriculums, unit assessments, and labeling through assessments, so I know that if I manage to convince my principal that I want to use this framework in my classroom and then it fails- I’ll be in big trouble:) I am going to start by seeing if I can manage to make a year spiraling plan. If I see that it is too difficult, I may just use the idea of doing the first three lessons of each unit. Thank you for the information-packed, clear, and practical videos!
