I received this email message yesterday from a teacher in my district. Teachers wonder why people don’t treat them like professionals.
If we could set this up formally afterschool and provide either PD credit of stipends I think there would be insentive to come. Every math teacher in the building is going to be overwhelmed and need all the support they can get so that they will imbrace all the efforts being made through the adoption, not to mention the work Carla and John have put into trying to make this happen. We are going from the dark ages to the 21st century at warp speed if everything goes as planned. After everyone gets there feet wet I would like to see it become a sharing session where teachers would take turns presenting to the group their own activities and things that are working for them.
