Teachers who helped raise DC scores--please tell us how
A frequent contributor to this blog, known as efavorite, has made an interesting suggestion:
"Here's a hot idea for an article for you -- interview some of those 4th and 8th grade teachers to find out exactly what they've been doing to cause this continuing improvement in math scores over the years. Look especially at vet teachers who have been around through several superintendent changes. They will have a good historical perspective."
You saw our front page story Wednesday on the score increases. Great teachers did excellent work. But how? If you are one of those DC math teachers of any elementary or middle school grade (all of you contribute to long term achievement) please post a comment here. If you know any DC math teachers, please send this post to them. You can be as detailed as you like. This is a blog where people want to learn, not just vent.
