Well, I just got called out for slacking off on my blog....deservedly so. Between teaching, grad school, data team, and math academy (along with trying to have a life), writing has found a very small piece of my already full plate. I have written recently as I added to a piece I began working on last spring. The time apart was certainly beneficial in taking a fresh, new look at it. I actually began the piece as we were teaching fractured fairy tales to our 5th graders. Writing with my students is very inspirational for all of us and teacher modeling is research based. Right, Marzano?
