The third Monday of January is generally referred to as “Blue Monday”. The days are short and dark, the Christmas magic is a distant memory and a lot of those resolutions we’ve aimed to live by are starting to fall by the wayside. This year, the start of a new decade, I’m keen to flip the narrative around “the most depressing day of the year” and use it as a springboard for a bit of a health kick. But first… a bit of reflection..
During the academic year 2017/2018, I embarked on a journey towards a mastery curriculum in Maths. I have had the opportunity to reflect on the full second year of this approach and the philosophy that underpins a mastery approach.
