The teacher in this article was herself a struggling student in math. Why? She explains that her teachers lectured and students took notes and practiced. The next day they did the same. Today as a math teacher in Tenessee she reflects on the changes in math in Common Core and likes them a lot. Read to learn how she organizes her math classes and what she asks her students to do. Very worthwhile!
