Why K-12 schools are failing by not teaching SEARCH | The Thinking Stick

Why K-12 schools are failing by not teaching SEARCH | The Thinking Stick | Library | Scoop.it

“I’m sorry the K-12 system has failed your students….they should know how to search by the time they get to college. But seeing that they don’t, until your students come prepared, you are going to have to pick up the slack.”

I then spent 30 minutes teaching university faculty how to search….because guess what……they didn’t know how to either. Which is exactly what I’ve come across with K-12 teachers, which helps to explain the unpreparedness of our students. So who is teaching our teachers the skills they need to teach our students?
