Was There Ever Any Point to the Three-Part Lesson?
Mathematics Teaching, n219 p26-27 Sep 2010
In a vain attempt to breathe new life into his blog (NCETM: MacMaths) the author has reproduced in this article his most popular attempt in which he talks about three-part lessons. He has nothing against three-part lessons, only their indiscriminate use, and the link that is often made to sharing learning objectives. That a lesson has a start, middle and end is an old idea. Old ideas are not necessarily bad ideas--and this is a good idea--but the notion that all lessons should be straitjacketed into three-parts, the author contends, is bad.
