In what might be our most thought-provoking episode of all time, Craig Barton, maths instructor from Northern England, talks about his transformation from a constructivist to a teacher who strongly believes in explicit instruction. Craig rejects the idea that students learn best when they discover truths on their own. He is well-read, articulate, and very engaging so quit reading this description and start the show! Tim and Scott are thankful for the generous support from our sponsor Rockin' the Standards.
