Conventional wisdom dictates that some things cannot be rushed. In education, that often meant you needed to put in your years before you were wise. I would suggest that even though school years plod on at a consistent pace, your can increase the rate at which you learn – you can speed up your Learning Trendline.
Classrooms where a lesson happens once a year are the origins of this slow rate of teacher experience. How can the same lesson happen multiple times, with intentional variations, quickly to give feedback to educators? By building in the availability of that same/similar lesson into multiple places in the classroom lesson plan. Not that all students keep doing the same lesson, but that rounds of students encounter the same/similar lesson and in between those encounters the teacher crafts improvements to the lesson.
