My 9 Questions for Reflective School Reform Leaders

In response to the November 22: Day of National Blogging for Real Education Reform, I have posed nine questions for school leaders to consider. They're organized around three themes and a concluding recommendation. Readers might also want to review my post "A Taxonomy of Reflection: Critical Thinking For Students, Teachers,..."

Theme 1. Learning must engage student in rigorous thinking at higher levels of Bloom - analyzing, evaluating and creating. School leaders should ask:

1. Does our school community recognize the difference between higher and lower order thinking?
2. Are students expected to just consume information, or are they asked to create something original that demonstrates their learning?
3. Is our school a creative problem-solving organization?
Answers: We cut music and art for remedial math. (Wrong!!!)
We recognize music and art are vehicles to teach math. (That's better!)
