It really is.
We think about the things we used to be able to do, but don't. We think about how choice and voice are gone from teaching. Maybe. There are still some elements of them. It's true, the standards tell us what to teach, but not exactly how. Exactly.

What are the most significant ways that you give your kids choice and voice in their learning? Let's pool some ideas so that we can ensure that these critical aspects of learning don't go away.
You can post right here, or fill out the attached survey and email it back to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm gathering ideas on this topic that we can hopefully share to make a real difference for kids and teachers. Really!
