The other day my daughter Caitlin happened to see a portion of the Bonnie Hunt Show while she was waiting for an appointment. She sent me a text message immediately telling me about the person on the show, Sir Ken Robinson, because she knew that I would be interested in what he had to say.
I have just begun to read about Sir Robinson and his ideas, but I really want to know more.
I have always said that the way that we teach our children is antiquated and out of touch with today. I think that ADD Students in particular suffer from teaching methods that are in some respects centuries old because they do not take their individual learning styles into account.
Please note: I am in NO way criticizing teachers. There are many wonderful, caring teachers out there who do the best they can with what they have to work with. My issues are with the school systems themselves and the way they are run.
I wanted to share some of what I am learning about Sir Ken Richardson and his ideas with you. I’m sure this is a subject I will continue to address.
