I don't think the "workshop"model came from one person. I believe that there are many people who already taught this way for years, but didn't 'publish' their ideas for one reason or another. It's great to share, but I'm somewhat offended that it comes down to one person who 'created the Math Workshop model.' As a graduate of NYU in 2000, NYC has already been doing the Math Workshop model, along with the Reading and Writing Workshop from Teacher's College. What Beth did was great, and I know teacher's share ideas, but credit should be given accordingly - similar to giving credit when citing sources.
