I am agreeing with the going upstream to find out why kids are falling in the river. I have recently been thinking about this. Every summer when I think about my approach for the fall, I think about how to expedite student learning. Then an administrator or coach will say, “That module assessment is due Friday,” and I go off the deep end and try to coach students with algorithms and ways to remember how to do something. I can testify that this approach does NOT work. I would like to commit myself to considering daily how to spark curiosity and plan lessons that are relevant to students so that they will understand and retain the mathematical understanding.
