You're welcome.
As we have always said, MMSD never advocates only one method of teaching any discipline. There are preferred methods by some, and preferred methods by others. We encourage teachers' knowledge of all methods, and encourage their using what works for them and for the children. The problems arise when folks think there is only one method worthy of practice.


I recently read the 3rd grade reading score data:
I am writing to thank you for supporting Lapham's approach.
Deerfield'ssuccess seems to support Lapham's curriculum. I also want to thank you for supporting the Singapore Math initiatives, and I look forward to learning more about that.

Best wishes -
