Episode 61 very helpful

I’m at the point in fully implementing MCP and was getting stuck. This episode got me unstuck.

Ms.MC821 ,

Awesome

The more I listen and learn, the more I love MCP. I am so excited about this instructional model. It makes me happy to think about planning!!

Stoney_Baloney ,

Keeps me going!

Hearing Zach, Kareem, Kate and the gang always gets me excited for the upcoming week because it always gives me something new to try or incorporate into my pedagogy. The MCP has set me on a path to constantly improving my practice and I’m so grateful!
Plus, it destroys the Sunday Scaries for me. After listening on Sunday afternoon, I feel totally ready to slay on Monday!!!
