Teachers like to teach the same to every student, and expect every student to understand what they are teaching. They tend to move quickly, never really stopping to see if everyone gets it. We need to start addressing this issue, I think the way that teachers teach is by making sure the majority gets what’s going on and the rest will fall by the way side. Lydia Dobyns brings up a good point in a recent article saying “Those of us who offer innovative ways to educate believe we need to replace a factory method of teaching with a student-centered learning environment in which the roles of the teacher, student and administrator function differently at every level.”
What do you think? Should we keep teaching the same way from K-12? Or should every level of school be taught differently?
