A repost from 2008:
The floorboards of our classrooms are rotting. How long have we waited for the final cave-in of each one!
All of us will be dropped, all akimbo, each at the right moment for us, into the waiting underground lake of fluency. There, we will meet each other again in collegiality and joy. It is happening now. Schools are literally falling apart.
This lake consists of the waters of intuition, not obsession with teaching near the book, or correctly, or to impress people, or from lists, all unfortunate intellectualized interpretations of what Blaine intended. The method is intuitive, and there is no right way to communicate with our students in our classrooms.
