    So here the thing, this year i have been working on mind growth set but we just had exams and the students fell into the Bell Curve and are crushed.  I feel like I failed.  For a short period of time, I had students leaning in and working on the math but they were not able to perform on the January exam.  Now I have a lot of students wondering what happened? I too am wondering.  I give formative assessments but need to do better at improving my instructions to help those who struggled.  It seems we are always moving ahead in order to cover the outcomes. I still feel like my am sorting students for grade 10.  I realize that students already came with gaps in their math but I find it frustrating that I am not as far along as I had hoped.
