Calling all math teachers - take a few minutes to evaluate your math textbook and get a $10 gift card for Amazon and start your summer reading early.
I really like the idea of aggregating feedback from teachers in a way that protect’s a teacher’s identity. It is time to crowdsource teacher feedback and I think it would need to be a neutral third party.This provides a benefit to teachers, educators, and even to publishers.
(Eventually, it sure would be nice to teachersource feedback on standardized tests - most teachers don’t mind accountability but it is being accountable for the right things.)
(Full disclosure: I really like what this company Classroom Window is doing and how they want to aggregate teacher opinions into something that can make a difference and am in negotiations to have a (very small) stake in this company. As always I follow the blogger’s code of ethics and my own and let you know if there is any other influence that you should be aware of. Also, however, note that I never work with anyone that I wouldn’t recommend whether I was officially “working” with them or not.)
