Viewpoint: Yes, Whole-Class Teaching Improves Mathematical Instruction by Cutting Down on Preparation Time for Teachers and Providing Teachers with a Consistent Method to Assess Student Development.

A Big Difference

Whole-class teaching (WCT) and its associated technology, make it easier to effectively teach mathematics. WCT makes a big difference by cutting down on preparation time for teachers, and helps to keep the class focused on the math concept at hand, thus freeing the teacher from classroom management issues (so more time can be spent on effectively teaching math), and providing a consistent way to assess student development and learning. The whole-class methodology requires a fundamental change in teaching; with a change in the emphasis on how to teach, changes in the assessment of student performance, use of an integrated curriculum, and the use of manipulative and activity-based instruction.

In spite of the many favorable attributes...
