Exciting stuff happening at our school. Today we hashed out a plan to destroy ‘Math 7’ and ‘Math 8’ as classes and instead teach students as many standards as they can master from 7th grade up through the end of Algebra 1 using three teachers, a paraprofessional, and the power of standards-based assessment and reporting.

Similar plan is in the works for ELA.

People have been listening to me about the necessity of a core curriculum that’s more than a binder of curriculum maps and content standards. This work is going to push that agenda forward by requiring our middle level Math and English teachers to be explicit about their intended outcomes and what is non-negotiable in terms of skills and knowledge.

It almost makes up for the fact that I found out my case load is going to double next year!
