The time to tilt teaching is NOW.
Enough talking about it; it’s time to evolve education to match the unique and colorful learners who grace our classrooms today.
We do not (we should not) need to continue to conform to old school educational practices. It’s time to do something different.
Did you know there are schools doing learning very differently and getting amazing results?
Did you know when teachers focus on student wellness and identity first, test scores go up?
Did you know that according to the World Economic Forum, the most in-demand occupations or specialties in many industries and countries did not exist 10 or even five years ago, and the pace of change continues to accelerate?
Imagine non-traditional high schools where students unpack their identity, learn wellness skills, and identify their passion and purpose. Imagine them deeply connected with their school and community, and gaining the transferable and 21st century skills needed to work in rapidly changing industries.
You don’t have to imagine this. An Education Evolution has already started. A wide variety of these models exist and following their lead, we can transform high school into a place where students are healthier, more engaged, more productive, mentored, and dedicated to creating connections–not divisions and hate–in our world.
