A repost from last year, before ANATTY:
It always comes down to submitting docs, it seems, and we just need to get the problem solved. If anyone has a middle school unit plan S/S we need one for a middle school teacher:
Basically she says that after ten years of TPRS, in the past three years has lost a lot of her energy and passion for the method, but has regained the essence of CI from the Big CI Book, and now needs Understanding by Design docs for her school.
Here is a teacher burnt out on TPRS having to not only try to keep it interesting to herself but then turn around over her summer and submit a totally meaningless document to over-controlling district people who – if you saw Michael Moore’s thing on Finland – don’t deserve to be messing with us like that.
