Isn’t It True That…..

Teaching is complex….it is situation-specific….and dilemma-ridden. No list of what a  teacher should do on a daily basis can capture the extraordinary subtleties involved in making instant decisions in the classroom to support students. Having in-depth conversations with students about the meaning of learning, instead of telling students to just DO the work, IS what teaching should be!
