Got it -> Get it Transfers

Despite years of research supporting discovery learning, many math teachers hesitate to try it.  We didn’t learn that way and many examples have a dozen pages of explanation.  But it doesn’t have to be that way.  It is possible to learn how to teach by discovery by simply substituting one direct instruction lesson with a short discovery activity for the same topic.  In a single class period, students can evolve from one level of understanding to another:   from something they already “got” to  “get” something new, in seamless transfer.

For this reason, I have set up a new blog for collecting and sharing them, “Got it -> Get it Tranfers.”  Please join me in spreading the joy of discovery learning:
