I Promise You Freedom.
As I perused this quick article today, I found myself exclaiming, “Yes!” over and over. I find myself slowly undoing my own mindset of what education is. I seem to find these articles at just the right time, as in the times I’m banging my head against a wall while I’m met with resistance about how I am teaching. Sam likes hands-on, mechanical stuff (of which I know nothing…), Ava likes reptiles and abhors busy work (but how will I assess her?!), and Emma, oh poor Emma, just wants to learn how to read (she. asks. everyday.). So, this article really just backs me up. I promise you, my dear ones, the freedom to learn. Mama is trying…just give her some time to “undo” her mindset.
