Rick Wormeli offers his perspective on redos, retakes, and do-overs with respect to instructional approach and implementation in classrooms. I’ve always been an advocate of teaching a skill until it is learned and the student/pupil/Jedi/whatever can demonstrate the skill with mastery. That belief is my motivation for not just my career as an educator but musically as well. Why wouldn’t I want to be the best I can be? Unfortunately in education and music too, “time” moves faster than learning many times. In education we are bound to pacing guides and other boundaries that force us to make a certain amount of progress in time for the assessments. We need to fix that in America, soon. We are better than that and our youth deserve better than that…they deserve to learn authentically and deeply by way of rich and engaging curriculum.
