A call for development help on a development day

So, I owe the world like 5 different posts, but INSTEAD I’m going to ask y’all for a favor.

As some of you may remember, I started a project following Twitter Math Camp called “Make First Like Third”, a goal to basically help new teachers be less noob-like.  It’s been really interesting some of the feedback we’ve already received, and special shout-outs to Meg, Matt, Glen, James, Gabe, and everyone else that’s added something to the list.

But because I’m a child of the new Millenium, I WANT MORE. So this is a call to everyone, on a day when most of us don’t have students, do add just ONE THING to the list. What is one misconception you’ve encountered in the last week and how could others avoid it?   It doesn’t have to be earth shattering, sometimes something as simple as word-choice can complete change a lesson. But if you’re reading this you’re obviously a brilliant teacher already, so help spread some of that brilliance on to others.
