Teacher Tips #39

Teacherscribe’s Teaching Tip #39

Here is a blog post with a title that I just couldn’t resist clicking on:  9 Elephants in the (Class)Room That Should “Unsettle” Us by one of my favorite people in education, Will Richardson.

Elephant #3 – We know that deep, lasting learning requires conditions that schools and classrooms simply were not built for.

Why can’t we change this?  I am glad, though, that we at LHS are trying to change this.  Many of our students are out doing internships and work experience.

Still, when I’m seen as a rebel for taking my class to a coffee shop for a free reading day, what hope do we have to step outside of our comfort zones to offer new conditions for students to learn?
