Which choice should we make

Which Choice Should We Make?

  • Teach all the standards

  • Teach interesting lessons which hit standards

  • Teach what we want and don’t worry about the standards

  • Teach what we think we should-according to the textbook, our gut . . .

What are the students saying2

What are the Students Saying?

  • 45 minutes is not enough time

    • Our teachers often rush through stuff

    • We rarely do hands on/real-life activities

    • We don’t get many examples (especially in math)

    • 90% of most classes are paper and pencil

    • “I know why we have to do the stuff, but we are often bored”

  • 90 minutes is too long, unless we break it up with activities or have a chance to move around

  • 60 to 70 minutes would be perfect
