COMMENTARY: More Argument, Fewer Standards By Mike Schmoker and Gerald Graff

COMMENTARY

More Argument, Fewer Standards

By Mike Schmoker and Gerald Graff

 

If we want record numbers of students to succeed in postsecondary studies and careers, an ancient, accessible concept needs to be restored to its rightful place at the center of schooling: argument.

Can I Be Done?

I remember having a conversation with an elementary art teacher about 12 years ago whereby she lamented over a question posed by a student regarding an art project.  "Can I be done?," the student asked.  The teacher responded, "I don't know can you?"  Only the artist knows when he or she is done.  Artwork, like any other work in school - math or science tasks, historical or literary analysis, etc. is an exploration of understanding that should not be guided by a process akin to…

21 Things That Will Be Obsolete by 2020

I came across the following post on The Committed Sardine (a great site to check out).

 

Inspired by Sandy Speicher’s vision of the designed school day of the future, reader Shelly Blake-Plock shared his own predictions of that ideal day. How close are we to this? The post was written in December 2009, and Blake-Plock says he’s seeing some of these already beginning to come to fruition.
