We teach Children, not Math.

einsteinThis came from a friend on social media.  A great blog entry about a teacher who monitors her students’ social interactions in a subtle, but effective way.

There’s so much to discuss in this article.

  • I like the perspective of a parent asking for tutoring (for the parent) even though the kid “gets it.”
  • I love that many folks read it and can’t get past the idea of “new math.”
  • And of course, I love the emphasis on people skills.

Skills for the 21st Century include working & communicating with others.  And we need to see more classrooms that TEACH these skills, not just talk about them or monitor them.
