I woke this morning and found this tweet from Alfie Kohn in my Twitter Stream:
It immediately reminded me of the article I wrote with my GVSU colleague, Dr. Pamela Wells - Are They Wrong? Or Did They Just Answer a Different Question?
But it also brought to mind a cartoon John Golden drew for me after I shared with him a talk I heard at a leadership conference at the University of Michigan's School of Education. This was before Twitter, so he had to wait until I drove back from Ann Arbor to tell him about it. I do not remember who the speaker was, but I do remember the message: we need to be figuring out what learners are saying and not the other way around.
So what is your paradigm?
