So we want to make the world a better place?

Comments Off

In our leadership meetings, we have talked about our vision.  One strong and overarching theme, to make the world a better place, emerges.  In this blog post, an English teacher learns from research about her students that sometimes what we think we are doing with students is only happening in our heads, not theirs.

We need to continue exploring how to help students understand the link between what we are teaching and what hopefully they are learning with the bigger world outside our classrooms.

The following students also placed in their event:
