I just watched an awesome TED talk by Sir Ken Robinson that I want to share with you.
Do your days at school feel like you are sailing into a headwind? Are you successful IN SPITE OF the dominant culture at your school?
If so, then you will be able to relate to this talk about how our education systems are designed to ignore three principles on which human life flourishes.
Differences, curiosity, and creativity.
If you are already creating library centers, then you are providing your students with a break from the low-grade, standardized clerical work that is dominating our classrooms.
Kudos to you! Keep on sailing into that headwind! Encourage curiosity, the engine of achievement! Cultivate a climate of possibilities in your school library!
Keep on being awesome...for your students!
