This school year I have had the opportunity to participate in a Principals Academy for the elementary math and science core curriculum. One of the presenters at the academy asked,with all of the expectations we have on teachers in regards to high-stakes testing and student growth, why do we set elementary teachers up to fail? He went on to explain that traditionally elementary teachers are expected to teach multiple different subjects yet are expected to provide the same quality instruction in each of those classes as a teacher assigned to teach one or two subjects. While listening I found myself wondering what we could do at MMS to help our sixth grade teachers and students have the greatest opportunity for success. During a recent PLC I shared with the sixth grade team the things I had learned and was thinking about to get their ideas on how we could make changes to enhance student learning.

“Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand.” Chinese Proverb
Often when a teacher tells students about a new concept, the student has a hard time remembering what they heard.  When a teacher explains the new concept and demonstrates the concept, there is a greater probability that the concept will stick with the student.
