This is this second episode of School Chat, I sat down Alyssa Trausch a current sophomore at Elk Grove High School. She wrote an amazing piece on what she wants school to be. Here is an excerpt:
I want school to be a place where I love to go to every day. A place where learning is new, innovative, and exciting. When learning feels natural and not like all the content is being forced into my brain I have a tendency to remember it more. Truthfully I think what I really want school to be is a place where I can learn new things without being worried all about what score/grade I’m going to get and rather worrying about how I can use what I just learned to make my life (or someone’s else’s) better.
It's a message everyone should here and we should strive to make happen in our classrooms every day. Have a listen.
