Math Perspectives by Brian Bushart

Brian Bushart has shared some of the things he learned while attending the Math Perspectives Leadership Institute led by Kathy Richardson. He has also written a blog post about his thinking now. All of it is worth reading and thinking about. I wanted to save his thinking so I am sharing it here.

“Our standards on the other hand are all about getting answers and going at a pace that is likely too fast for many of our students. We end up with classrooms where many students are just imitating procedures or saying words they do not really understand. How long before these students find themselves in intervention? We blame the students (and they likely blame themselves) and put the burden on teachers down the road to try to build the foundation because we never gave it the time it deserved.”
