Of the six Unlearning/Relearning ideas, I feel that I will have the easiest time committing to #2: Discover, don't deliver, the curriculum. In my K-12 education, curriculum was delivered to me. I must admit that when I first began learning about "discovering" mathematics, as an education technique, I was skeptical. I was not convinced that this could actually work. However, I've seen it! 6th grade students at VMMS used their knowledge about calculating the area of a rectangle to derive the formula for the area of a parallelogram. From parallelogram, they derived the formula for the area of a triangle, and finally, trapezoids. The students discovered patterns, tested theories, and created convincing arguments. As a teacher, I want to facilitate this type of learning in my classroom.

I feel that I might struggle with #1: Share everything. The main reason that I feel I will struggle with this Unlearning/Relearning idea is simply because of time. I have no problem sharing my work with others and I enjoy collaborating with other teachers. However, I worry that I will not have time to keep up with the online community of teachers who post and share lessons frequently. This is a skill/goal that I will need to work towards.
