Small things are not always small. A microscopic virus can close down airports, schools and businesses. An invisible atom can be made into the most destructive weapon. A tiny seed grows into a towering tree. The examples could go on.
And yet, the tiniest things get underestimated, overlooked, or trampled.
In this post, I invite you to look at a small bit of information, a relatively short article, about an educator whom you’ve probably never heard of.
When you are finished reading, I invite you to take an extra two minutes to consider the far reaching power this “small bit of information” could have on the entire field of education. What would happen if this idea was to spread and be put into practice? What effect would it have on student learning? Student engagement? Curriculum design? Academic achievement? Teacher evaluation criteria? Graduation rates? College and career readiness?
Then, please post a comment with your thoughts. Is it really a small idea?
Here’s the article link.
