Inspired by Scot McLeod and his blog post My son is 8. He’s a maker.
I encourage you to follow up and make your own post.
My son is 5. He is a maker. He builds cities out of trains and Hot Wheels. They block the halls and cover the furniture.
My son is 7. He is a maker. He draws pictures of children playing, Angry Birds flying, and pigs hiding.
My sons are 5 and 7. They are a makers. Will Their classes enable them or quash them? Will their teachers inspire them or suppress them? Will their schools nurture their brilliant divergence or force them into a convergent, one-size-fits-all model?
My sons are 5 and 7. They are a makers. their world-changing skills and talents never will be reflected in an educational world of worksheets, end-of-chapter review questions, course exams, and bubble tests. How will you accommodate and recognize their gifts?
My sons are 5 and 7. They are a makers. Are you ready?
