It's almost impossible to not get caught in the distraction trap. Everywhere we turn something is waving at us, something is pleading for our attention and focus.


Take a moment (yes I'm waving for your attention) to read this post, you'll be glad you did.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 2, 2015 7:23 PM

And the article is not just about adults.

Junking old way of teaching writing

Junking old way of teaching writing | Writing & Working Smarter | Scoop.it

Using the ARTS through which to teach Reading-Writing-'Rithmatic seems EXACTLY right to me!

My suggestion of a required high school course where teachers edit students in person while the rest of the class reads good books seems radical, but some educators say they like it.

 

This guy suggests a way of teaching by just getting them to write. Sounds like what I believe, too!
