Stuart Little is no ordinary mouse. He is a clever, adventurous, thoughtful, and will have students giggling and enjoying every moment of his story. Stuart Little , by E. White, is a classic novel that will win over second to fifth graders as they read about his adventures in New York City. When Margalo disappears from home, Stuart sets off to find her, his biggest adventure yet.
In one sense, I get it. When a class period becomes nothing more than a teacher distributing worksheet after worksheet to keep kids busy, that class is probably falling well short of its potential. Our job is to teach, not to chuck worksheets at kids. But but! A worksheet, after all, is an inanimate object. First, consider Mechanics Instruction that Sticks , a warm-ups curriculum now with formative assessments that my colleague Doug Stark creates during his summers. If you simply take Doug's pack of warm-ups and chuck them at your students, letting them work alone while you scroll through Facebook, then yes, that's really poor teaching.
