“Start where the learner is.” John Dewey

Ahhhh….how wise was John Dewey? He knew that assessment leaders to reflection which then drives planning and lands as teaching!  By starting where the learning IS, we teach smarter, not harder… and kids learn better and faster.

How do we know where the learner is? ASSESS, OBSERVE, REFLECT on a DAILY basis….that’s how!

Hats off to you, Mr. Dewey…
