Teacher/parent nights have become a part of our world these past few years and they seem to get more interesting as the grades ascend. ****Watch this episode and subscribe to the podcast: I always am eager to hear about the state-run curriculum handed down to the schools while measuring each of my kid's teacher's enthusiasm for what they're told to teach for that year. This year was a bit different.... As my wife and I went from classroom to classroom meeting my daughter's teachers, there was one that *really* stood out. Mr. Svihlik aka "Mr.S" will be handling the History and Social Studies portion of my little girl's 8 grade experience. His philosophy wasn't about making sure that she came away with all the correct dates and who was involved with what battle. Instead he was more about her learning time management skills, strategically arguing grades, and even to a certain extent, salesmanship.
As one might imagine, I was quite pleased. After all, it's not often that I seek out teachers to be on the show. Some of the things discussed: - failure is okay, the earlier you know how to do it and bounce back from it, the better - the problem with labeling kids as "gifted" - hiring a kid who strives diligently for a "B" over the kid who effortlessly earns an "A" - the immensely growing importance of trade schools As always, the JMVO Weekly Primer is sponsored by @Big Dot Lighting - Commercial LED Lighting Specialists.
