Power Talk with Linda Ballesteros with Special Guests DR.Robert Rose & Helen Racz
DR. Robert Rose spent almost fifty years successfully teaching from kindergarten to graduate students. During this time I have constantly challenged the status quo asking, “Why are we doing it this way?” It caused me problems with some of those with more legal power, but it sent me to the libraries and then the Internet to find solutions. It's how i developed the SELF-SUSTAINING CLASSROOM!
In these searches I didn't find the solution, but found many . It amazed me how many could effectively solve specific problems. Once I truly understood how complex and enormously different each student was from every other I began experimenting with ways to individualize instruction. The disadvantages were total exhaustion for me and the unconscious encouragement of selfish behavior for my students.
It's good to talk.
