    <p style=”text-align: left;”>I totally agree. I teach grade 7, but the reflecting was driven by some lower-elementary and French immersion colleagues. So much of math is communicating and verifying your thinking. I’m wondering how often we get bogged down by the assessment tool more than all the possible options to for students to demonstrate their thinking. In general, considering these possibilities is a big shift in teaching, learning, and assessment in all areas (think Tomlinson and differentiated instruction and assessment), but I’d say especially in Math.</p>
