    I have already begun teaching in chunks/units. BUT – I have 2 takeaways that I will pay more attention to and that is assessments. I am intrigued about the SIZE of the assessments (6 questions sounds great! You don’t have to take the whole block and potentially less teacher checking/correcting time!) AND there is no cramming/review day. I could review and intertwine previously learned skills into the current topic and by keeping it all current it could keep down the review days. Also, since my team/grade has only done operations with all kinds of numbers, we could break down the curriculum from here and do a smaller version of a spiraling curriculum. Lots to think about! BUT – without the support of my colleagues at my grade level who are teaching the same thing, this is difficult to do and a little frightening to take on by myself.
