An education isn't how much you've committed to memory, or even how much you know. It's being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don't.

School is Boring, And It Needs
To Change

By Allison Zamuda 

Break Free from These Damaging Myths

In Breaking Free from Myths about Teaching and Learning (2010), Allison Zmuda identifies nine myths about learning that contribute to school boredom as well as damage our students' natural wonder, curiosity, creativity, joyous exploration and natural learning.

Myth #1: The rules of this classroom and subject area are determined by each teacher.

Myth #2: What the teacher wants me to say is more important than what I want to say.
