#RethinkHighSchool: The Series

Project Published 7/18/17 Last updated on 7/20/17

I wrote (re)Imagine in response to the Super School Challenge. Our staff wasn't too excited about my ideas but a few others—including some of the folks from one of the winning schools ($10M grant) who popped by to observe and discuss—have shown interest. The (re)Imagine blog post isn't a plan for the future; it's just one more part of what we're currently doing in the Mac Lab (my classroom).

Since virtually everything else I'll be posting will reference information in (re)Imagine, you might as well give it a go if you're interested in rethinking your own learning environment. And who knows, you might even find an idea or two that'll work for you and your students. :)

NOTE: If (re)Imagine is in tl;dr territory—it's around a 30 minute read—I apologize but don't know how to work around the issue. According to WordPress, I've made 330 revisions since the article was first published. I actually have tried to be clear and concise but when challenging common sense one must tread with caution so as not to unnecessarily offend the reader.

*sigh* Unfortunately, tact isn't one of my strengths. Nor is writing, but I do try. (Dyslexia is such a misunderstood superpower.)

I'll be sharing more #RethinkHighSchool resources so you can easily find them on the EdEx. Click on the magnifying glass at the top of the page and search for for RethinkHighSchool (without the #) and you'll find the rest.
