So, rather than give her an easier way to plan rigorous lessons, I suggested that we create a 'stop doing' list.

12 THINGS THAT WILL DISAPPEAR FROM CLASSROOMS IN THE NEXT 20 YEARS
Blog post by Terry Heick:12 Things That Will Disappear From Classrooms In The Next 12 Years
“The classroom is changing because the world is changing.That may not be as true as we’d like it to be–the pace of the change in education lags awkwardly behind what we see in the consumer markets. It could be argued that there’s been more innovation in churches and taxis than there’s been in libraries and schools, which is a special kind of crazy, but logical: “fields” that are dependent on consumer habits are far more vulnerable to disruption. Education, being more or less perma-funded by governments and misunderstood by the public, is more built to resist change.”
