Dan Meyer's blog is bold, refreshing and energizing. Dan is a math teacher (like myself, don't hold that against him!) who proves that creative juices and eloquent writing can flow through those left-brained minds! I read his posts every day to remind myself why I am still in this profession and to be re-energized. He has a perspective on assessment and accountability that belies his age and has developed clever ratios like the DisruptiveStudent'sSatisfaction to measure his effectiveness in dealing with students whose sole purpose is teacher burnout. You may not agree with all of his views but you will appreciate his pizazz!
