21st Century Learning...I Promise This Will be Interesting
A great book came past my desk this week.
Breaking Free From Myths About Teaching and Learning by Allison Zmuda.
The Three things that have caught my attention so far:
1. A focus on "What is learning is Naturally like?" (How can schools evolve to meet this idea?)
2. Parent Involvement. They shouldn't be asking "Is my child doing well at school?" But rather, "Is school doing well by my child?" (p.46)
3. A plethora of reflections questions like, "What if in our efforts to move faster we get further behind?"
Check it out! Very timely....
Until Next Time,
Lit Maven Out!
