Paul, I’ve been getting “credited” for things like putting the learning objectives on the board in “kid friendly” language for years now. My students can attest to the fact that, in spite of my sustained accomplishment in this critical domain, day-to-day teaching and learning in my class can still suck.

But at least Charlotte Danielson thinks I’m distinguished.
