Kate Gasaway, a former middle school math teacher, reflects on the memories from teaching that have stayed with her. The most powerful memories are, to paraphrase Maya Angelou, the ones that made her feel.
For her students to truly be fluent in math, Kate Gasaway and her colleagues needed to change how they taught. By moving from direct instruction to a discourse-based, student-centered instruction model, her school improved student learning and made class more engaging.
