Here we go! The final two questions of section two!
I know that there is SO much variation from school to school, district to district, state to state, and country to country! How much control do YOU have in your planning and execution of your teaching? I'm curious!
Consider these two questions and share out your ideas. Be honest--if you have doubts about something, I guarantee others do as well!
Chapter 6 is all about planning your instructional time--from yearly planning to daily planning. How much flexibility do you have with your planning? What is a "typical" math class like for you--and how do you feel you need to change it?
Chapter 7 provides us with some detailed examples of differentiation in action. What "aha's" did you have? What DOUBTS do you have? Let's be honest--it all sounds good on paper, right? What do you perceive to be the biggest obstacles to some of the ideas presented in the last few chapters?
Ready to dig in? Like I mentioned on Saturday . . . this section opened up some glaring "holes" in what I do, and I need to do some soul searching to figure out how to make some improvements! I look forward to your thoughts over the next few days!
