Wow, thanks Abby, I’ve got so many questions, I’m sure a lot of them are going to depend on how my school implements the program, but here goes:
1) In your experience, what are the advantages of that sort of team teaching over a traditional classroom of 30ish kids and 1 teacher?
2) I’m having trouble visualizing how the classroom runs. Would it be 1 teacher dealing with like 50 kids and the other teachers pulling focus groups, or is it all math stations, or what? I know our execution will vary, but how is it your classes typically run?
3) How hard is it to have a good relationship with all the students? As far as I can tell, that relationship is critical to academic safety and getting the students moving. I’m really concerned that if I’ve got 350+ students, I’m just not going to be able to form those relationships that they need to succeed.
There’s more questions, but I’ll stop there for now.
