- A great quote from TeachPaperless here.
The fearful are afraid that formative assessment might actually be demonstrated to be more powerful than testing.
- I remember reading this early on in my teaching and I think we are even further away from being a critical thinker. In fact, it would seem most students think more critically these days than adults. Most adults believe what they read or are unwilling to look at a different viewpoint. Most students are labeled as uncaring, unmotivated, etc. I am beginning to think that they don't buy into our old media and equally old (and flawed) values.
- Big picture thinking which is difficult in high schools, is a reason why interdisciplinary and authentic work is harder to find. A great post here on the territoriality of courses in high school brings to light some problems.
