How do you decide what to teach?
How do you determine what skills they need to work on? Or brush up on? How do you decide what to teach them? (I want them to explore a lot of their own interests, and just have them direct a lot of it, but I also want to make sure they are learning in ALL areas, not just the stuff that is fun or interesting to them).
I was going to use the ccss just to see where the gaps are, but I am wanting to take them out of ps-one reason being to get away from the ccss. Are there certain things states require you to teach them? I feel like the more I learn, the more questions I have!
