This article challenged me on so many levels.
I am the parent that wants:
quiet while schooling
sitting still and self-controlled
book learning as a focus
my students to *listen to me while I talk* without giving a lot of time to hear them talk
to listen the first time so I will not have to repeat
I will say that reading this write-up has caused me to begin to look at my schooling through the eyes of my inquisitive children and their learning.
I think you may be challenged by this writing too. 😀
