…we’d let kids ask more questions and then give them support to find their own answers.
…we’d see dunking milk in cookies as a science opportunity, not just a snack.
…we’d only give kids giant test booklets if they needed to use the paper build a tower to explore force & motion.
…we’d label our kids with terms like “mostly visual learner, hilarious, excels in reading, struggles with addition, loves baseball” instead of “Proficient” or “Basic”
…we’d stop making copies of low-level worksheets and give more blank sheets of paper for brainstorming.
…we’d make it our goal to get kids to ask questions in class that we cannot answer, nor Google the answer to.
…we’d stop spending billions on textbooks.
…we’d celebrate mistakes far more than we celebrate earning “A’s”.
