Testimonials

“WOWIE ZOWIE, Sue–your site is so beautiful! And aMAZing! And comprehensive! And simple to use!

Teachers will be thrilled to have this wonderful resource!

The video modeling is really well done and looks great!

The audio talk-through is also helpful — your voice is warm and reassuring, and having someone “there” to provide personal instructions is VERY effective on lots of levels.

What an enormous amount of work and what spectacular results! Congrats to everyone, especially you!”
– Marcia Hill, Editorial, McGraw-Hill Education

“Thank you for taking the time to meet with all of us today. I think it was very helpful and invigorating. I could feel the excitement as the teachers were finding the connections that you were laying out before them. You are a gem! I’ll neaten up my notes and send them to you.”

“I finally had time this morning to take a good long look at your website. The scope and comprehensiveness of what you have created is truly impressive. And I really connect to your philosophy of “experience first, then label.” I especially value your broken-down steps that help teachers deliver the “experience first, then label” model. This is a more Socratic approach to teaching. It is very hard to train teachers to hold off on the “labeling” until they observe that, through experience, the students have mastered the concept well enough for the teacher to finally label it. Your approach emphasizes formative assessment – the teacher needs to be watching and listening to the children to determine how to shape and move the learning. It’s much more creative for the teacher. I will have to come back to your site several times to really grasp everything you are doing. It’s overwhelming. Congratulations! I can only imagine how this brings together a lifetime of practice and work!!”
– Marcia Daft, founder and artistic director, Moving Through Math & Moving Through Science
