Starting From Scratch
How frustrating can it be to stare at a blank page? To pull from a limited mental log of information and create something unique and meaningful...
A student's access to information is just the beginning
Students must know how to organize such information, make (often abstract) connections, and be inspired to create.
Are you teaching in the 21st century?
"A teacher who is attempting to teach without inspiring the pupil with a desire to learn is hammering on a cold iron.” - Horace Mann
Is your class relevant to the student's world?
"If we value independence, if we are disturbed by the growing conformity of knowledge, then we may wish to set up conditions of learning which make for uniqueness." - Carl Rogers
Are your students venturing into unforeseen territory?
“Man can learn nothing unless he proceeds from the known to the unknown.” - Claude Bernard
