A lot of educators share the following common concern with me, “I know I’m teaching better, how come my results aren’t better.”
There are three basic answers. Here is the first and most critical reason. If the teacher is not following an aligned scope and sequence with a significant degree of fidelity, the quality of delivered instruction is moot. Teaching the right thing (the right content at the right time) is priority one. The quality of delivered instruction is priority two.
Here is the punch in the gut to prideful teachers… All things being equal, poorly delivered, ALIGNED instruction is more effective than expertly delivered NON-ALIGNED instruction.
Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
