JCPS Wants You To Design The First 'School of Innovation' | eHS Mobile Classroom | Scoop.it

If you could design your own school, what would it look like?

 

That’s the question posed to Jefferson County residents by the school district, which will consider the best idea for creating the first “school of innovation” and help it become a reality as early as the 2015-2016 school year, officials said Tuesday.

“I would like to see classrooms get dumped in general,” says Fred Durham, co-founder of Café Press in Louisville.

I Never Thought I'd Want To High-Five A Teacher For Yelling At A Student, But I Was Wrong

I Never Thought I'd Want To High-Five A Teacher For Yelling At A Student, But I Was Wrong | eHS Mobile Classroom | Scoop.it

I know this is on the long-ish side, but I promise that there's a really valuable message here that makes it worth watching all the way through. 

Jane Elliot is a teacher and diversity trainer who developed the "Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes" exercise to teach students what it feels like to be a person of color. This video begins pretty abruptly, where one of the students who's been singled out based on eye color is extremely frustrated. 

At 2:46, Elliot explains why she keeps going even after she's made the point. At 3:35, she delivers an important message. And at 10:05, you may laugh a little, but I think you'll really get it.

Many years ago, I could have been the girl who walked out, not understanding how this feels to the people it affects. I'm glad that's no longer the case.
