    I ran across the term cognitive load when I was working on my Curriculum and Development Master’s degree. I TOTALLY agree with Dylan Wiliam and Natalie Wexler. Cognitive load theory is “the single most important thing for teachers to know.

    I completely agree with everything you’ve described. We are confusing our students when we don’t use common languages, each grade they have to learn an entirely new routine, etc. I think we are also confusing our struggling students when we are using different language and curricular resources in Tier 1, 2, and 3. I love the visual of the Gradual Release of Responsibility framework over the 3 Tiers…increasing the instruction and practice with each.
