Middle-school English teacher Ariel Sacks in this blog post reflects on the training she received at Bank Street College of Education in New York City. The methods taught at the school have teachers introducing skills relevant to students' experiences and questions, rather than having them learn in isolation, and have led to success for many of the school's graduates, Sacks writes. She goes on to ask why such programs are studied but not brought to scale as a model for training new educators.
