National Standards are Over? What Are We Going to Do Now?

It scares the hell out of me that educators are so entrenched in assessment-driven curricula that they are panicking about what to do in class now that National Standards are abolished.

  • Step 1. Do some reading around future-focused learning and new pedagogies for deep learning.  Go on, google it!
  • Step 2. Start by getting your learners to talk about what is important in the world.
  • Step 3.  Let them think about ways they can have a part to play. 
  • Step 4. Teach them ways of working on being communicative, collaborative, connected, creative, critically thinking, and expressing their character or culture
  • Step 5.  Build on their individual skills and talents.
You won't stop wondering why you ever thought National Standards were so great.
