Dan Pink has some suggestions for schools in his book Drive (about motivation).
|"Give students a chance to learn what they want to learn."|
The classroom is in West Palm Beach, Florida, at
Oxbridge Academy oapb.org
ConnectedPrincipals.com has a post where the recommendations are highlighted.
The "20% day" is captured in a poster on a wall in the classroom (shown in this video). What does the student have to say about the recommendation?
|Many thanks to the volunteer in this video|
I've seen the introduction, I've read the book and it helped me as a teacher see that "always be closing" (the ABCs that kept me away from ever calling myself a salesman) can be updated... to A, buoyancy and clarity.
