Teachers are the arbitrators of knowledge and culture.
Knowledge and culture are each dynamic, endlessly crashing and churning.
This makes teaching significantly important and difficult work, and can leave teaching—as a craft—wide-eyed and nonplussed in response.
Worse, those outside the bubble of education can understandably struggle to understand the problem.
What are the teaching in those schools anyway? How is it any different from when I was in school?
Well, as it turns out, much of it is different from even five years ago.
Starting with literacy.
