Six school days until math AIMS starts. I finished teaching new material a few weeks ago, so now we’ve been reviewing. Why is AIMS in April? Why did I have to fly through a year’s worth of curriculum from August to March? What am I going to do after AIMS? (Ignore that last question, because I don’t really care. I’m not convinced there is life after AIMS.)
I hate reviewing. I don’t know how to do it well and no one seems to be able to tell me what it should look like. They had the nerve at school to tell us to stop stressing, which was hilarious after nine months of breathing down our necks about how desperate we are to make AYP. I hope the kids can’t pick up on this. I cannot wait for this test to just be over.
