Controlled Effectiveness Studies

Today, our eighth grade science teacher found me at lunch and thanked me profusely. When I asked her what for, she responded, “For doing your job.” Um, you’re welcome?

Turns out she was really happy because she had started physics and needed the kids to solve equations, and my kids were actually able to do it. She teaches two classes of my kids and two classes of kids whose math teacher refused to teach all year and then quit. This means she effectively has a control-group study of the effect of having me as a math teacher vs having no math teacher. It turns out that I actually have successfully taught my kids more about solving equations than they would have learned with no math teacher at all. I know, this says a lot about me and you’re very impressed. :-)

  1. I actually am really impressed because I guarantee if you put me in that situation I’d just confuse myself and them and they’d leave stupider than they came in.
