teaching & learning, in a fancy dress


“…create conditions where right from the jump you’re giving people intellectually-engaging material. And even if their skills are so poor that they can’t read it, then you read it for them. Maybe you have to scale things down a bit, maybe you rewrite it. You throw people into it, and then along the way you address the bits and pieces.  They can be defining moments for people. They’re powerful. They help shape who we are. It can happen with kids who maybe aren’t doing so well in school. It can happen if we create the right kinds of environments for them.”
