Educationally Significant

Cris Tovani shared this quote in her presentation at NCTE in San Antonio last Sunday.

"What was once educationally significant, but difficult to measure, has been replaced by what is insignificant and easy to measure. So now we test how well we have taught what we do not value." ~ Art Costa

Scary to think about!
I need to post this quote in my office as a constant reminder to do what is right for kids.

Yikes. I agree.

Hey, I see you've been tweaking your layout! NICE! You lost your followers widget...or maybe you decided to lose it. Whatever. Love the new banner!
