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

Those Slurpees were my go-go juice until Cayle crushed my dreams.

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

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.

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!

Is this the place to be yet?  I'll keep checking every few months, I guess...
