For Students Who Hate School

Funny that a Google search for Willingham’s book on how teachers can better reach and teach students led me to this:

A site for students who do not like school. Lots of interesting reading. I would love to have some of those students comment here. I especially like the very goth theme on their site. I think a lot of kids hate school not just goth, outsiders. Might isolate the regular kids. Seems to be only addressing one type of student who doesn’t like school and a bit limited.

Welcome

After attending the Learning and the Brain Conference I was so wound about where to go with my teaching. I have a baby, not the time to get a pH.D. I guess I will write a blog.
