Who are you?

You can look at students in terms of how to fashion a curriculum to fit their interests and needs; 

Or you can look to students for the curriculum.

That's what I mean when I say the student and the standard can't occupy the highest priority slot at the same time.

It will come down to a matter of how you look at students. They have either strengths or weaknesses. You look at a student and think, "How can you learn this?" or you look at a student and think, "Who are you?"


  1. In Sir Ken Robinson's book, The Element, he writes that currently public education is all about "How Smart Are You?". He suggests that it should be all about "How Are You Smart?"
