An Open Letter to Educators
By: Morgan Bayda
This is a great post by Morgan Bayda. I also really enjoyed the video by Dan Brown. They both make very good interesting points. I agree with many of their points, like some classes cheat you out of learning. Students pay lots of money for classes and at the end of the semester they still no nothing. Dan Brown also speaks about how students have to pay so much for books, when the information is just a simple click away. He speaks how technology needs to be in schools. As much as I think about it and say I want to quit school, that's one thing I don't agree with. I won't quit school.
Tom Johnson's Don't Let them Take Pencils Home!
Mr. Johnson's post was very unique and interesting. I do too agree that some kids use pencils as a toy and some kids use them as a learning tool. I like what he states about some kids think they are using pencils to play but are learning something at the same time and do not know it. That's so true. Now I have never heard of taking pencils home will lower test scores, and that really leave me to wonder?
