So... sprints. Kate's going to convince me they're valuable, but I have trouble seeing this.

If we had students work these problems, then step back and discuss the patterns and structure for a good long time, then dive back to a second sprint, that would be pretty valuable. The sprint script doesn't do this.

The sprint script also spends more time having students say "Yes" in call-and-response answer checking than time spent doing math, has this weird exercise thing going on in the middle, and offers a reward to students who are the "best" (answered the most questions correctly within the time limit).

Many of the sprints are also not structured in any meaningful way that I could see. Others are clearly well-structured.

Ok, listenin' time :)

And absolutely: if there is data around student success, but also about how students react to the sprints, I would love to hear it.

This is an absolute embarrassment, and I say that as someone who has delivered high-quality PD to CPS teachers for many years. It's hard to believe this is a real thing that happened.

That actually took more man-hours than 3 Ford Tauruseses.

How do you avoid students mixing the addition and multiplication stories?

Ok friends, I'm looking to talk to someone at Google about our educational work (we are using Hangouts and need some enhancements).

Who can I talk to about this? YOU? 

I have a letter with the details if anyone wants me to send it to you.

Thanks everyone!
