RedKudu’s fellow English teachers have decided to coordinate their teaching so all students learn the same curriculum. RedKudu seems the potential to “streamline a student’s progress through our English program.”
I pointed out that if we knew that everyone on the junior level is teaching similar, or even the same, lessons from The Great Gatsby on symbolism, and that all students had to show proficiency on an exam or carefully evaluated assignment which was the same across the classes…think of how we could teach to mastery by evaluating which questions the students could or couldn’t complete, then revise our lessons to address their deficiencies.
I hope she’ll report on how teachers implement the idea.
