Dear Teacher: Heartfelt Advice for Teachers from Students

Is it JUNE yet? No, sorry...just April!

The article below is a great read about students, from a teacher's perspective. This quick read talks about how, at the end of the year, we are all exhausted, and are looking for fast ways of having students consume information (ie. movies, etc.). The idea behind the article is that instead of students consuming information, have them be creative and learn but through creative ways (and yes, he gives us ideas of how this creativity can take place!)
