Breaking out of the classroom into the world....
@ DoyleRead through your interview. Pretty good stuff. My favorite line is about not wasting a kids time with busy work.
As I posted on her blog, two of my favorite writers on one post!? That was a real treat to read this morning - thank you!
Great read! I love both of your blogs and seeing them both simultaneously was a treat!
Dear Charlie,Thanks for the kind words--wasting time with busy work should be a misdemeanor. I liked learning, I hated--HATED--busywork in school.I understood drill work--some things are worth having in a box in your brain. Busy work, though, is simply institutionalized child abuse, and I suspect largely responsible for the cynicism kids develop through their years in school. Dear Kelly,Thank you for your warm words. I love reading Dina's blog. I am thrilled she took the time to chat with me, and am tickled pink to see my words at her place.Dear Patrick,Thanks for the kind words--Dina did an amazing job. I rambled from here to Creation, and she kept pushing me back, keeping things focused. It was a treat for me as well.
Don't you feel so cool?You should.I still have quotes from your blog in my quotes file. One day I'll unearth them when you become famous. Great interview :-)
