Summer was a busy time when I was a school leader, yet my schedule was more my own. I encourage you to schedule time away from the office for reading, prayer and reflection. Here are some reading ideas, but you may also, like I did, have a stack beside your desk or a folder within Outlook to read!
Most students still learn using a method that has existed in our schools for over 100 years. In a typical classroom setting, students sit at desks in rows and the teacher “teaches” from the front of the room. The typical student has been trained since childhood for someone to give them information and take notes or listen. While the traditional classroom is adept at preparing students for industrial and knowledge-based jobs, it has not kept pace with preparing students for today’s economy that employs a greater share of workers in service and innovation-based economies.
