Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, January 19, 9:44 AM

This is worthy of a good read as we get into some backwards planning in K-12. My biggest take-away from this article is this statement: "Findings indicated that most graduates needed to learn a combination of basic and complex life skills during the past year, such as money-management, how to make household repairs, and how to advance in their careers and communicate better on the job."

To me that just screams information literacy - the realm of the school library media specialist. Share this with your curriculum team!

This is an excellent article to share with teachers (or YOU) who want to improve their practice in a more intentional, targeted manner. The best part is that most of these suggestions can meet teachers at the point of need which makes more sense anyway. Enjoy!

Originally written in August of this year - I don't know how I missed it. Jennifer LaGarde is a valued voice in the school library world and this piece is perfect for that time when (and you know it will happen) a well-meaning teacher or administrator will tell you that the students are "too old" or that there isn't enough time in the instructional day for reading to students.

I could almost have stopped after reading that opening quote because of how deeply it resonated with me; however, the rest of this article is well worth your time. I love how the author compares prescriptive education to hydroponic gardening - it may be faster and more efficient but what is lost in the process? Are we willing to give all of that up for fast and efficient?

Erika Bailey's curator insight, November 19, 2015 11:23 AM

This article resonates with my long-held belief that education should be teaching us to learn and be avid learners, not to take tests and prove what we know.
