do you laminate?

01 Nov

i read a great analogy today on the ASCD blog.  it looked at curriculum as a choice between laminated vs. cut/paste/copy.  i thought it really hit the mark when looking at the differences between those who think once its created its there forever and those who realize that what works one year won’t necessarily work the next.

    Very interesting analogy. Now I understand why I like to cut/copy/paste so much.

    Definitely something to think about. HAving worked in curriuclum – I can vouch for the Cut/copy/paste mentality. However, on the other side – there are some amazing tidbits out there that need to be laminated for awhile – at least long enough to analyze them and determine if they are making a different with students or not. If we CCP too frequently, we are unable to measure the growth that occured with our original idea/concept. Then we never truly stop to reflect and see what workt and what didnt!

    Oh boy – it’s back to that reflection piece once again!
