An Open Letter to Educators
I really enjoyed reading Morgan Bayda’s post and watching Dan Brown's Video. Morgan Bayda mentioned how she feel cheated in Universities. I too feel cheated in class after sitting through long dreadful lectures about facts that I may never hear of or need to regurgitate again after the test. I was pleased to realize that i'm not the only one who feel school is really interfering with education. I think I would be better off just researching random thoughts, ideas, or just simple information and learn more things than I do in some classrooms. School to me can really be a waste of time and money in some aspects. Mr. Brown could not have said it better when he talked about how books may never be used, teachers may never really know u exist, and the facts learned are sometimes useless.
Don't Let Them Take Pencils Home
This post was very inspiring. At first after reading the post I thought " Okay how does taking pencils home lower test scores and what is Mr. Spencer trying to prove. After reading the post a second time and really understand the meaning behind the story, I was touched and thought this was very eye opening. All he was saying was focus on a creative and great solution not worry so much of the problem here. Why do the child get noticed more for low test scores instead of being encouraged and motivated and taught better statigies and ways to improve.
