I love Edutopia. I hope many of you know of it already, and for of you who don’t? Have a look:
I have many educational videos on my iPhone that I download from them, and I also subscribe to an RSS feed that let’s me see every day what news they have. Today, they had yet another one that is very much worthy of sharing.
The final summary paragraph includes a foundational line for me: “Create a culture of respect.”
We’re trying to reestablish that in our schools. Certainly the Guiding Principles that were adopted last year create a foundation for just that. Having said that, I think I might alter my foundational line by adding two lines to it: “Create, and maintain, a culture of respect.”
