The Tyranny of Being On Task - Edutopia

The Tyranny of Being On Task - Edutopia | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
There seem to be forces in education that push us to make sure students are on task. Why do we attempt to meet that demand when we know it’s unreasonable? Why do we demand on task behavior when it is not equivalent to student engagement? Isn’t it OK for students to be off task from time to time? In fact, don’t students need time to be off task? To take it to another level, what if off task is really on task?
