Clarence Fisher’s recent post suggests giving students the flexibility to choose what they want to learn about. I think this is an good idea and I recommend you read more about it on his blog.
The comment challenge for today involves turning your blog over to your readers and asking them to write a post through the comment section. So today, I’m asking readers for their take on how much choice students should have in defining curriculum. Are there any limits? What does choice look like for a kindergartener as opposed to an ninth grader? Should there be any required learning? If so, what knowledge and skills must be required? I’m eager to hear what you think.
