The WASL this week
There is an interesting article in The Seattle Times today about the WASL and how math is taught in this state. As I read, I couldn't help thinking that I'm just the kind of math teacher they're looking for, as I actually take the time to explain why things work. One thing I plan on doing once I get my own class, I might add, is to teach the proper vocabulary for each lesson, how to use it, and expect that my students will use it properly. That alone should go a long way towards making explanations easier.
