Sample text

What we saw was people doing something and thinking about it at the same time.

Tim Daly, president of The New Teacher Project, recently did this to revise the way his organization trains teachers. Daly realized that teachers TNTP placed in schools often never succeeded if they failed to learn to manage classroom behavior within the first two months. He asked his team to redesign training, dramatically reducing the number of topics on which new teachers received training and focusing on the skills they would need to establish a classroom culture until that goal was achieved.

As they do so, they get further and further from their goal.
