Time for a quick confession: I have been struggling with a challenge . . . a huge challenge. For years I have researched instruction, curriculum, and assessment in every subject area of the PK-8 curriculum. Now, after 26 years in the classroom, as a practitioner, I am still not satisfied with my instruction. How can this be? Shouldn’t my job be clockwork? Shouldn’t I have this “teaching” thing down to a “T“? Ugh!! I struggle!!
