I have come to believe we should teach all kids the way we teach our gifted kids. We need to raise the overall level, enrich the standard curriculum, expect more of each student, and make the classroom more exciting and experiential kinds will learn the fundamentals if the process gets more exciting.
I believe that having engaging work is life-
Enhancing it keeps you young and vigorous.
Schools should be full of engaged learners. Student should be gathered in groups, adapting the Socratic Method by asking questions and learning from one another. They’re learning how to challenge one another in a way that isn’t personal. They then apply what they’ve been learning
Regardless of what field they enter, students must be able to express themselves and know what’s happening in the world. We want them to become citizen/leaders. I’m a great believer that young people grow and benefit from dealing directly with the consequences of their actions
