A gentle reminder ...

The goal of this blog initially was for Mr. Mc to show his students and friends what he doing while in Pennsylvania and DC in 2011. Now it's being used as a place for him, travelling colleagues and former students to discuss edumacation and history related "stuff" as well as ... well, anything which pops into his head. Mr. Mc would never knowingly embarrass either the school he loves or the family he is devoted to. By joining in the discussion, he expects the same of you.

Living and growing in the classrooms we aspire to have.

Living and growing in the classrooms we aspire to have.

The blog link is from a friend from PA. I met Chad when we both attended the Stratford Hall-Monticello program in 2008. The program no longer exists, which is a shame, focused on Revolutionary Leadership. We spent ten days of our three weeks at Stratford Hall, the home of the Lee family, which includes two signers of the  Declaration  of Independence and  Robert E. Lee. Four days were spent at Williamsburg, Yorktown  an Jamestown and one week and Monticello.
I like this post because Chad holds himself accountable.We can blame  parents, administrators and Common Core, but that's just whining if we don't  look at  our own practices as well.
Another thing I like about his post is the idea of play. Tony Wagner  in his book Creating Innovators, spends  a lot  of time on play and it has been something I have been reflecting on of late.
