Day 37 (of 186) sigh….kids today…..(will nobody think of the children?!) thanks to @pernilleripp @shareski @freerangekids & @jonhaidt
Read two blogs that are worth reading and commentary on their own….both connect to school and society.
The first by the amazing @pernilleripp on reading – specifically reading for content vs reading for synthesis (and my takeaway: why do teachers who promote programs like Accelerated Reader often not promote reading for pleasure on tablets?)
The second was forwarded via @shareski
And looks very directly at the nanny culture we are currently living in. In B.C. the “recommendation” as seen by our MCFD taking a family to task for riding a bus home without a parent seems to be 12 – so I’ve asked the question about our grade 2-6 ish kids who walk from school or bus to home without an adult supervisor….are we creating “the fragile generation”?

These two thinkings have really activated my brain – and I need them to be shared!
