Title of event: Transform Your Classroom book study: What School Could Be by Ted Dintersmith
Objective(s): The goal is to do better things in the classroom vs. doing things better.
Description: A self-directed book study, What School Could Be challenges traditional education and gives a vision of what it could become showing examples from around the country of innovation and change and the success students experience as a result.
Post Five Day Evaluation: This book totally energized me. O the possibilities! It sparked brain connections and is changing how I want to proceed. I pray I can keep up the momentum, and find it worthwhile to press through when I get tired mid-year. I am amazed at others' innovation and creativity, problem solving in small communities and plugging-in in large ones. We have oodles of potential at WWG to be one of these schools, helping kids truly learn and love it. We just need to tweak how we view how to do things, how to help them pursue what they were made to do. Teaching to a test just seems so pointless. We should be teaching to a life career and purpose.
