Eight years ago when I first started sharing philosophical tidbits with my staff at Shanghai Community International School as the Middle School Assistant Principal, it was mostly me sharing interesting articles I had read, videos I’d seen, and occasionally some of my own thoughts. Over time I’ve grown more comfortable sharing my own thoughts and found a bit more of my own voice in writing. However, from time to time, I like to “go old school” and share some quality articles/blog posts that I consider good/relevant resources.
So without further ado, here are three that I’ve seen on Edutopia recently. I don’t agree with everything on Edutopia but there are lots of great contributors who have wonderful ideas to share. These three all seem very relevant to some of the conversations I’ve been having around the building and in meetings lately. Enjoy 🙂
