I would be the last person to say anything negative about Santa Claus, but I must admit that I’m a bit unhappy that one of my top gifts was not left under the tree. I did not win my fantasy football league championship.
His reasons for this omission are unclear, but I’m giving Santa a chance to redeem himself. This is a big one, I realize.
Santa, please give educators results-only learning for their schools this year.
I’m doing my part, promoting my book, Role Reversal
, and visiting school districts nationwide and in Canada, encouraging educators to eliminate traditional teaching
, in favor of student-centered, results-only learning.
Every little bit helps, though. We can transform teaching and learning in classrooms everywhere, if educators understand that lecture, homework
, tests and grades are destroying our kids’ thirst for learning.
I know it’s a lot to ask, but give me a hand, Santa. Please put results-only learning under every educator’s tree this Christmas.
Oh, and leave a note, asking them to share it with all of their peers.
Who knows? Maybe this Christmas, we’ll change the world.
