Subject: How Children Learn
This class has reaffirmed my belief on how children learn through inquiry. However, I find myself getting under a time crunch to get things taught and have my students prepared for the following year. I also worry about my class being well rounded (knowing a variety of strategies) in math, including the algorythm, in case there are teachers that only accept that method. Does anyone else feel like this?

I too find it overwhelming. I teach at a year round school and found that keeping organized and up on all the teaching strategies is difficult. It seems that I just get started on one concept or work in a variety of ways to teach it and then I go on track break. There is also all of the other activities that get thrown in there that slow the pace of learning (althought I do feel they are beneficial to students, I just wish they would wait to schedule them after testing). Let's just hang in there and keep learning about learning.
