Our job as teachers has changed. The fact based curriculum is dead. Facts come easy. I mean just ask Siri or look on google.
Our job is now to inspire. To inspire new perspectives, to uncover the unknown and open the gateway to a world of discovery.
Show the class that not everything is as it seems. Not every article is true, not every picture is clear. Allow your class to understand that there is still much more to find out.
Show them examples of misconceptions, new discoveries and unexplained mysteries. Your job is to empower them to want to find out more, to solve the problem, to leave no stone unturned.
For example “Did you know that an owl’s legs were actually quite long?” I thought not. What other animal facts are you yet to discover?
Let’s use the library, the computer and our friends to discover more facts.
These are the first steps to instilling a research based, child lead pedagogy into your school. Where children are naturally inspired by the unknown. Try it.
Share it! ❤️
