I’ll be taking a few days off to visit family, so you probably won’t hear too much from me next week. While I’m gone, keep up the great commenting on teacher effectiveness (which I’ve decided is such a complex issue that trying to make sense of it runs second in difficulty only to trying to make sense of airline frequent-flyer rules).
Additionally, the Teacher Beat page will be down on Saturday, Sept. 19, as the tech folks move us over to a new system. It should be back up on Monday.
While I’m out, I’ll be sitting in on some history classes taught by my brother, a doctoral student in history who teaches college freshmen. It will be interesting to hear his take on college readiness and to watch him in action. I hope to come back with some fresh teacher-related story ideas.
